    6:30-8:30 PM
    Bellevue City Hall, Room 1E-108

    In November of 2018, the city began an update of the ESI Strategic Plan to assess progress and set new goals. The updated plan will run from 2020-2025 and will build upon the progress made from 2013-2019.  

    The planning process includes community outreach and will address the priorities of Bellevue residents. Opportunities to engage with staff and make your voice heard can be found on the ESI Update Page.

    Our Accomplishments and Progress

    The Environmental Stewardship Strategic Plan includes 57 strategies for cutting greenhouse gas emissions and waste, increasing mobility options, energy efficiency and water conservation, and enhancing our ecosystems and open spaces.  A full progress report on the ESI Strategic Plan was presented to the City Council in February 2019. 

    The Environmental Performance Dashboard provides up to date information on Bellevue's performance on environmental metrics such as greenhouse gas emissions, energy use, and water use.
