Comprehensive Plan Update
The City Council adopted the Comprehensive Plan Update on Aug. 3, 2015 (Council agendas), dedicating the plan to the late Nan Campbell, former Bellevue mayor. Mayor Claudia Balducci and council members acknowledged the work of the entire community in bringing the plan to adoption.
Completion of the updated Comprehensive Plan followed nearly two years of public outreach that began in 2013 with a “Best Ideas” effort, which drew hundreds of comments about how Bellevue should plan for the future. A key objective of the update was to make the plan more accessible and usable, so that it remains an effective planning tool.
The Comp Plan addresses a broad range of city issues, such as growth and changing demographics, neighborhoods, transportation, affordable housing and homelessness, environmental stewardship, and economic development.
