Achieving Human Potential Performance

Survey results confirm that Bellevue is a welcoming, connected community in which all generations have opportunities to live, work and play. Nine in ten residents believe their neighborhoods are good or excellent places to live. Each year, the city created or preserved more affordable housing units than the previous year. The city also consistently increased funding to ensure that human services are readily available for community members.

The below indicators were collected by staff subject matter experts, after an in-depth review of each Strategic Target Area (STA). The review process included an examination of the STA description and the desired outcomes defined therein, the identification of a well-rounded set of relevant performance metrics, and analysis of year-over-year data trends and performance against target. For more information about Bellevue's vision for Achieving Human Potential, click here.
