Downtown residents invited to community forum

With downtown Bellevue becoming increasingly residential, people living there are invited to talk with city staff about block watches, code enforcement and other neighborhood issues.

Nearly 7,000 residents live in the downtown core, with that number expected to double by 2020. The Police Department and Neighborhood Outreach will host a community forum about safety and livability downtown for residents in the area on Thursday, Sept. 23, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Bellevue Regional Library, Room 1.

The forum will address personal safety, auto crimes, identity theft, noise code enforcement and protection against crime. Police will also share strategies on community policing and block watches. Residents will be invited to voice any questions, concerns or suggestions they have about downtown living or about relations with the city.

For more information or to submit discussion questions in advance for the free event, contact Neighborhood Outreach at 425-452-6836 or by e-mail at neighborhoodoutreach@bellevuewa.gov.
