The Southeast District Council (SEDC) is a citizen advisory group, one of thirteen in the city, that provides the means for cooperative actions by Southeast organizations with all branches of City government. The SEDC also provides a forum to disseminate information and to encourage discussion of common concerns among residents, businesses and community organizations. . The SEDC also works to:  

  • Steward the Southeast Seattle Action Agenda
  • Support the leadership and efforts of member organizations
  • Make recommendations on the city budget
  • Ensure the diversity of the Rainier Valley is represented in neighborhood planning
  • Make Neighborhood Matching Fund and Projects Fund recommendations: For infomation on the projects visit 2009 Neighborhood Projects Fund or 2009 Large Neigborhood Matching Fund Projects . 
  • Make Bridging the Gap Large Transporation Projects recommendation. To learn more about the fund, timeline, 2007 unfunded projects, and to submit an application, visit BTG page.
  • Support implementation of the neighborhood plans

The Southeast District boundaries extend from I-90 to the north to the city limits, and east of MLK Jr. Blvd. to Lake Washington.
