Now is the time to think and plan for the future generations of Bellevue.
The city is conducting a ten-year update of its 2004 Comprehensive Plan to stay consistent with state and regional planning frameworks. The update focuses on changes to policies concerning key topics. Residents, community groups, businesses and other stakeholders have been engaged in strong public participation to suggest changes that help the plan remain relevant. The update will also include new population and growth figures reflecting the changes in our community in the last decade. Finally, the update extends the planning horizon from 2022 to 2035.
The City Council received a 2014 Comprehensive Plan Update status briefing at its September 15, 2014 meeting. The Planning Commission is devoting the bulk of its current meeting time to continued draft CPU policy review. Continued public outreach is expected around releasing the draft Plan, Planning Commission public hearing, and City Council review leading up to the June 2015 state deadline.
Bellevue’s comprehensive plan captures the community’s vision for the future and provides direction for city regulations and investments. While the current comprehensive plan has served the community well, a lot has changed in Bellevue since, including the boom in downtown development, annexation of the Eastgate area and plans for light rail.
