It is often heard that people love the neighborhoods of Seattle, the sense of community, and close proximity to resources. The City of Seattle has a Web site for our neighborhoods and this link is a great place to learn about all of the areas of Seattle, new projects being proposed and worked on, and links to resources are provided throughout the city. Please visit the Department of Neighborhoods.
Puget Sound News has links to many local neighborhood communities like Bainbridge Island, Ballard, the Eastside, Federal Way, Issaquah, Mercer Island, Puyallup and Tacoma. For those not yet on-line, you can check out many of the neighborhoods by calling the local paper and asking to be placed on their mailing list, for a small fee, of course.
