About Us


The Beacon Hill Council (BHC) of Seattle is an  all-volunteer community organization. Our mission is to advocate for a welcoming, diverse and healthy Beacon Hill community neighborhood. See Bylaws.

Our geographic boundaries include: to the north, Interstate 90; to the west, Interstate 5; to the south, S Perry Street; and to the east, Rainier Avenue South and Martin Luther King Jr. Way South. 

We are community builders.

We provide:

  • Opportunities for our residents, business persons and property owners to improve our community, 

  • Hold open forums to discuss what is going on in our community, issues and solutions, 

  • Connect with groups, public, non-profit and for-profit agencies to work together to solve issues and/or make improvements. 

Monthly Meetings

First Tuesday of each month unless otherwise noted.

Community meetings: 6:30 - 8:00 pm

Board meeting 8:00 - 9:00 pm 

Topics typically include neighborhood issues such as land use, business and economic development, environment, transportation, parking, open space, community events, and other items of interest for the well-being of the community.  (See meeting agendas and notes tab on the front page.)

Getting Involved is Easy!

Come to the meetings, volunteer or become a member.  There are no membership fees.  Any Beacon Hill resident, business person, property owner, governmental agencies, businesses and non-profit organizations can participate.
