We seek to conserve neighborhood businesses that are the cultural cornerstones of Seattle.


Seattle is known for its unique neighborhoods, each home to a thriving landscape of locally-owned businesses that occupy an essential role in the stories and rituals that define the city. These bars, restaurants, cafés, and shops have attracted locals and visitors alike for a taste of the city’ s unique character and sense of community. This project intends to recognize these important establishments; identify elements that contribute to the culture, character, and history of Seattle; and establish goals to protect them.
