The efforts of our active local neighborhood councils make living here the best it can be, ensuring neighborhood schools, libraries, parks, roads, utilities, and other amenities are maintained and enhanced for the health, safety, and enjoyment of all. The NW District Council works with other Districts, the City of Seattle, and state and regional entities to make life better for everyone.
