The city is considering changes to its development codes and standards that could reduce stormwater runoff from development and redevelopment. Residents, developers and other stakeholders are invited to give feedback on proposed changes at open houses this month.
- May 17: City Hall, 450 110th Ave. NE, 10 a.m.-noon;
- May 18: Lewis Creek Visitor Center, 5808 Lakemont Blvd. SE, 6-8 p.m.; and
- May 19: Northwest Arts Center, 9825 NE 24th St., 6-8 p.m.
The proposed code changes are intended to encourage the use of low-impact development principles, which involve reducing impervious surfaces and keeping more vegetation on a site than traditional development. Staff in the Utilities, Transportation, Parks and Development Services departments, working with consultants, drafted the proposed changes as part of the city's Low Impact Development Principles Project.
Come and hear about the proposals and how they may affect you. Staff will be available to answer your questions and accept your comments and feedback. Please RSVP to Monica Chalik (MChalik@bellevuewa.gov or 425-452-6128).
