The 15th Ave Street Sweep is a community cleanup by neighborhood residents, teams from local businesses and organizations, and Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce members. Volunteers will sweep the sidewalks, pick up litter, clean windows, paint over graffiti, and remove outdated posters from light poles. Nearly 100 volunteers showed up for the cleanup last fall. All cleaning supplies will be provided.
“This will be a wonderful chance for neighborhood residents and business owners to get to know each other,” said Robert Sondheim, Chair of the CHCC Clean and Safe Committee. “By volunteering a few hours of their time, each person will have the satisfaction of contributing to the beautification of Capitol Hill, and they’ll have fun doing so.”
This is the first cleanup on 15th Avenue, but in the past two years, there have been similar events on Broadway and the Pike/Pine corridor. The CHCC would eventually like to include all of Capitol Hill’s business districts in future sweeps.

The Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce is committed to supporting an economically vital, livable community and promoting Capitol Hill as a unique urban neighborhood that is welcoming to everyone. The CHCC accomplishes this through a variety of methods including but not limited to: studying the retail climate along the Broadway corridor, building a relationship with the Mayor's office and City Council, engaging Sound Transit leadership on the Capitol Hill light rail station and public property improvements. The CHCC is also developing "clean and safe" programs that are community-controlled and not subject to the fluctuations of the City budget.
