Implementation Phase (current)
On January 8, 2014, the Planning Commission began to explore the nature of policy changes proposed by implementing the Eastgate/I-90 Corridor Land Use and Transportation project.
The vision for this project, put forth by the Citizen Advisory Committee and accepted by City Council in April 2012, seeks to capture a portion of the city's projected demand for office growth by rezoning the Eastgate corridor to increase building heights an floor area ratios (FAR) and allow additional development potential. Residential development and retail and services could be integrated into developments to increase the mix of uses.
Although zoning changes are expected throughout the corridor, the most intensive changes will be focused within a mixed-use transit oriented development center near the Eastgate Park and Ride and Bellevue College.
A series of Planning Commission study sessions on Eastgate are exploring policy issues within the Eastgate corridor throughout 2014. For more information on topics and meeting materials for past or upcoming meetings, please check these study sessions.
