About BDC

Ballard District Council (BDC) has been an active coalition of Ballard and Crown Hill organizations for thirty years. Originally established under auspices of the City of Seattle’s Department of Neighborhoods, we are now independent of the City. We continue our mission as a forum for community engagement, discussions and information sharing.

If you live or work in Ballard, come to a BDC meeting and participate in your greater Ballard community — the 2nd Wednesday evening of each month (excluding August). Meetings include multi-faceted presentations and discussions about growth, transportation, safety, parks, planning, sustainability, homelessness, emergency preparedness, and more. Connect with member organizations and individuals from Central Ballard, Crown Hill, Sunset Hill, Loyal Heights, Whittier Heights, Olympic Manor, North Beach, Blue Ridge, Salmon Bay, Shilshole, and West Woodland. Invite neighbors and business associates, new or old-timers, to build connections and participate in our historical, unique and fast-growing community.
