Now is the time to think and plan for the future generations of Bellevue.
The city is conducting a ten-year update of its Comprehensive Plan to stay consistent with state and regional planning frameworks. The update will include changes to policies concerning key topics, and residents and businesses will be asked 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 is scheduled to receive a 2014 Comprehensive Plan Update status briefing at its September 15 meeting. This will include the council work program items for the elements and specific subareas, and it will include a schedule for continued Planning Commission review and public hearing leading up to the June 2015 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, it was adopted in 2004, and a lot has changed in Bellevue since, including the boom in downtown development, annexation of the Eastgate area and plans for light rail.
