Focus groups for Downtown Livability initiative

As the city considers zoning regulations and design guidelines that would ensure downtown develops as a vibrant, mixed-use center, it wants to hear from residents, businesses, architects and others.  Seven stakeholder groups are invited to engage in two-hour focus group discussions March 5-12 at City Hall.

The meetings will include a brief presentation on the Downtown Livability Initiative, followed by small group, facilitated discussion. Discussion topics will include design, amenities and transportation issues. Feedback from these focus groups will help shape potential changes to the Land Use Code for downtown Bellevue.

Participants are encouraged to attend the meeting that best fits their stakeholder group, but are welcome to attend any meeting that is convenient. Meetings will be in room 1E-108.

  • Architects and planners, Tuesday, March 5, 2-4 p.m.
  • Property owners and developers, Wednesday, March 6, 8:30-10:30 a.m.
  • Brokers, Wednesday, March 6, 4-6 p.m.
