Capitol Hill Community Background
Capitol Hill lies north of 16th Avenue N.W. between 10th Street West and 19th Street West and is bordered on the north by Confederation Park. Access to Downtown, which is less than 5 kilometres away, is provided by either 10th Street or 14th Street N.W. The University of Calgary and the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (S.A.I.T.) are within the immediate vicinity of Capitol Hill. Although the number of school children has declined, there is a high number of University and S.A.I.T. students who reside in the area due to the proximity to those institutions. Most of the area was developed in the 1950s, although there are homes dating back to the 1920s. Capitol Hill has a strong component of single family dwelling units, some of which have been converted to include basement suites.
