WELCOME 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.
