CONNECT, COMMIT, IMPROVE. It’s simple, the best way to learn about and appreciate Capitol View is to get involved and really invest in our community. There’s plenty of ways you can meet your neighbors and possibly some new friends you’ll want to stay connected to for life. We have such a rich diversity of people, homes and interests right here in our own backyard, but you’ll never know about any of it if you don’t reach out and get involved.
