Bellevue’s Comprehensive Plan is the city’s foundational policy document, guiding growth and development here for the next 20 years. The maps, goals and policies of the plan provide the basis for Bellevue's regulations, programs and services. Comprehensive Plan Story Map
The City Council adopted the current Comprehensive Plan on Aug. 3, 2015 (agenda memo), dedicating it to Nan Campbell, former Bellevue mayor. The plan was updated following two years of public outreach.
The comprehensive plan is organized into two volumes, one focused on citywide policies and the second on goals and policies for Bellevue's 16 neighborhood areas.
Volume 1 has background information about Bellevue and the community vision for the future, along with goals for elements such as housing, transportation, human services and parks.
Volume 2 contains goals and policies of the subarea (or neighborhood area) plans and a consolidated list of long-range transportation facility projects.
You can view all of volume 1 in Flipbook format or access both volumes in individual PDF chapters linked below.
