• Regional Leadership and Influence

    Regional leadership icon

    Bellevue leads, catalyzes and partners with our neighbors throughout the region to advance common goals. We are at the center of the lakeside crescent formed by the cities of Redmond, Kirkland, Bellevue, Issaquah and Renton. Regional Leadership Performance

    Public safety, transportation, land use and a common agenda are at the heart of our success. The Eastside represents a major political, economic, cultural and educational force in the region. Bellevue, Seattle and other King County cities collaborate, partner and celebrate the benefits of working together as one region.

    Three-Year (2021-23) Priorities

    13. Be an active regional partner, whether it is with cities east of the lake, Seattle and King County, schools and special purpose districts, or the state and federal government. Strategically pursue public and/or private funding and partnerships where beneficial to Bellevue and the region. Establish a partnership with the Port of Seattle on our mutual areas of interest, including attraction of international business and tourism.
