TO THE NW DISTRICT COUNCIL
The Northwest District Council is an organization
of vibrant neighborhood groups working hard to keep this district a great
place to work, play, visit, and live. 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. For more information
