The City Council is seeking candidates for vacancies on Bellevue’s Parks & Community Services Board. Interested residents can apply online. Applications are due by Wednesday, March 15.
The Parks & Community Services Board advises the council on parks and open space issues such as park planning, design and construction, development, redevelopment and renovation, natural resources and environmental education. The board also advises the council on policies regarding recreation opportunities and community services issues.
Individuals joining the board will be involved in the implementation of the 2022 Bellevue Parks & Open Space System Plan, which includes projects funded by a new parks levy approved by Bellevue residents in November.
Made up of volunteers and appointed by the mayor with City Council concurrence, board and commission members serve four-year terms, offering their time and expertise to help shape Bellevue’s future.
