We are one of the oldest and most consistently active community councils in the City of Seattle. Founded in 1924, our mission is to maintain a vigilant awareness of activities that affect the quality of life in Magnolia and to take appropriate action to promote and protect the interests of the community. The Magnolia Community Council (MCC) identifies and acts on these issues of concern by participating in the public process and by providing funding, management and/or labor for community projects.
