Bellevue residents will get an opportunity to learn more about the remapping of the 100-year floodplain along Kelsey Creek at an open house Wednesday, Jan. 16, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at City Hall, room 1E-108.
The 100-year floodplain is the land area adjacent to the creek that periodically floods and is an important part of Bellevue's stormwater management program. Last mapped in 1979 by the federal government, the Kelsey Creek floodplain has been updated, based upon a 2006 stream survey, modern topographic mapping technology and revised 100-year flow rates.
Residents who cannot attend the meeting but want information or would like to submit questions in advance can contact Rick Watson at 425-452-4896 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visitor parking is free for anyone attending a city-sponsored event. The visitor garage is accessible from 110th Avenue Northeast (access for oversize vehicles is from Northeast Sixth Street).
