The eight measures here represent key data about Bellevue's performance serving the Responsive Government budget outcome. Most 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:

  • An open and transparent city government that seeks involvement from, listens to and communicates with the community;
  • A city government that provides high-quality service, excellent value and is accountable for results; and
  • A city government that looks ahead and seeks innovative solutions to regional and local challenges.
