The seven measures here represent key data about Bellevue's performance serving the Healthy and Sustainable Environment budget outcome. Some are resident responses to the annual Performance Measures survey. All measures are annual. Operational data come with targets or thresholds, illustrated by green lines. In some cases, the city aims to provide services that meet or exceed the target. In other cases, staying below the green line indicates quality service. Targets are assessed regularly and are based on previous experiences and future expectations.

As a community, Bellevue values:

  • Services and infrastructure that reliably ensure public health and safety, as well as protect the environment;
  • Stewardship and education that sustain a healthy environment for current and future generations;
  • A health natural environment that supports wildlife; and
  • A nature experience in which to live, work, learn and play.
