Bellevue 2035 - Where You Want to Be
Bellevue’s Comprehensive Plan is the city’s foundational policy document that guides growth and development for the next twenty years. Today, Bellevue is known as a community with beautiful natural areas, a vibrant Downtown and strong economy, some of the nation’s best schools, and healthy neighborhoods. Bellevue’s success today isn’t a fluke. It stems from decades of community work, foresight, and planning. This plan seeks to continue to enhance those qualities that make Bellevue a special place and build on the past.
The Vision of the Comprehensive Plan establishes the community’s desire for how the city should change and what to retain. The Vision ties directly to the plan’s “elements” or chapters that provide the city’s long-range policy direction for a number of topics and communitywide initiatives. These policies serve as the basis for city regulations, capital investments, programs, and other actions. Together, the Vision and the policies help ensure that the work of the city is coordinated and helping the community achieve its potential.
