In an effort to identify community hazards and to take steps to address them before they cause problems, the City of Bellevue is seeking input from the public at three community meetings.
The goal of the meetings will be to collect enough information to create a hazard mitigation plan for the city and enable it to access federal funds to deal with those hazards. The meetings will also offer information on what the city is doing to identify and plan for possible hazards.
The meetings are set for:
- Thursday, July 26, 7-8 p.m., Crossroads Community Center, 16000 NE 10th St.
- Monday, July 30, noon–1 p.m., Bellevue City Hall, 450 110 Ave. NE, Room 1E-112.
- Monday, July 30, 7-8 p.m., Bellevue City Hall, 450 110 Avenue NE, Room 1E-112.
Hazards can take many forms and can include natural, technological or man-made. By identifying potential hazards in our community and assessing potential impacts, the city has the opportunity to develop strategies to help mitigate the impacts before, during and after a disaster. Development of the plan will involve city departments, local agencies, the business community, landowners, developers and citizens, and will reflect local values and concerns.
Anyone with questions about the plan or meetings should contact Lisa Scott at the Bellevue Fire Department Emergency Preparedness Division, 425-452-7923.
