VOTING COMPLETE, SEVEN PROJECTS FUNDED
West Bellevue NEP ballots prioritizing the eligible projects competing for NEP funds have been received. The voting is now complete, and the results have been determined. Seven projects will be undertaken and are shown below. The total estimated cost for these projects is $358,700. Since the allocation for West Bellevue for this NEP cycle is $390,000, this leaves $1,300 of the allocation unspent. This amount, or any actual savings from the projects, will be added to the allocation for 2012. Details on the selected projects, with complete voting results, are shown below.
The seventh priority project, WB-09-G, is a sidewalk on 100th Ave SE. That project is estimated to cost $60,000. Including that project at the full cost would have resulted in expenditures over the $390,000 allocation. However, the Transportation Department was able to locate supplemental funds in order to reduce the Neighborhood Enhancement Program's cost. NEP will fund $30,000 of the project's cost with $30,000 with the remaining funds coming from the Pedestrian Access Fund.
Now is the time to wrap up this phase of Neighborhood Enhancement and move into the next phase -- implementation of the projects you and your neighbors have selected. Once again, we invite you to play an active role: contact the project manager to provide input; track the status of these and other projects on the City's web site; and see the results of the finished projects.
If you have any questions about the Neighborhood Enhancement Program, including questions about the results of the voting, please contact Ying Carlson, Coordinator of the Neighborhood Enhancement Program (contact information at right). Questions specific to the projects are best directed to the project manager for the project. E-mail links to the project managers are included with the project descriptions.
FUNDED PROJECTS - The following projects were selected by your vote and have been funded for completion within the next three years. Ballot numbers and points received are shown in italics. The points for each project are determined by assigning three points for each first priority vote, two points for each second priority vote and one point for each third priority vote. The points for all votes for each project are totaled.

This could include improvements such as a monument sign, appropriate landscaping and artistic elements. The location and design will be determined through public input.
