Thank you to Northwest Bellevue residents for your participation in the Neighborhood Enhancement Program in 2018.

Two capital improvement projects will be funded from the $315,000 Northwest Bellevue allotted budget.

1. Bellevue Way Landscape Enhancement

This project will provide for the beautification of the Bellevue Way streetscape on the west side of the boulevard that currently consists of common turf between curb and sidewalk and a mix of aging shrubs in right-of-way back of sidewalk. This project will remove the water inefficient turf, improve the soil and irrigation, and design and implement a landscape of plant combinations that will unify the streetscape of Northwest Bellevue. Opportunities on east side of Bellevue Way such as the Northtowne Park frontage will be researched for upgrades. Estimated design phase completion: Spring 2021.

Project Manager: Tom Kuykendall (425-452-7924); 

2. 100th Ave. NE and NE 18th St. Raised Intersection

This project will install a raised intersection at 100th Ave NE and NE 18th St to improve visibility of pedestrians crossing the street and encourage motorists to drive at a slower speed. The raised intersection will include high visibility school crosswalks and enhanced street lighting to improve safety at this key connection point for students walking to and from schools located on 98th Ave NE. Estimated Project completion: Summer 2021.

Project Manager: Daniel Lam (425-452-2063);

A Northwest Bellevue NEP Newsletter was mailed to each household in your area with complete voting results.

The Northwest Bellevue NEP kicked off in April of 2018 with 81 resident-identified project ideas submitted. Those projects were then reviewed for accessibility, feasibility, cost, timeliness and maintainability to determine which were eligible to become ballot projects. 17 projects were chosen and voted on by area residents. The top two projects receiving votes (listed above) will be installed over the next 3-5 years.

The NEP program is a commitment from Bellevue’s City Council to provide residents with the opportunity to enhance their individual neighborhood areas through city-funded, small capital improvement projects. In 2015, the Council approved $5 million for the program over a seven-year period to serve two NEP programs a year. The budget is distributed among each of the NEP neighborhood areas, according to the number of households in each area.

Please contact Theresa Cuthill, NEP Coordinator, at or 425-452-4186 with any questions.
