What is concurrency?

Washington State’s Growth Management Act (GMA) requires that infrastructure keep pace with land use and growth. Bellevue adopted the Traffic Standards Code (Bellevue City Code 14.10) to be in compliance with the GMA in 1989. The code and its associated administrative order detail the specifics of the Bellevue’s Concurrency Plan.

When is concurrency required?

A concurrency analysis is required only when the development, re-development, or change in use (including tenant improvements) will generate 30 or more new p.m. peak-hour trips.

We will provide the concurrency analysis after the applicant’s consultant and the Transportation Review Engineer have agreed on the appropriate trip-generation figure, using the city’s adopted rates. We will use the city’s computer model to administer the concurrency test.
