Residents in Bellevue have identified a variety of issues as important to their neighborhood. Throughout the city, commonly mentioned priority issues include traffic congestion, affordable housing, education, public safety, tree canopy, community character and others. Perspectives on these issues may vary depending on the neighborhood location, length of residency in Bellevue, growth and development experienced in the neighborhood, and other factors. For example, an interest in tree canopy may be expressed as a broad interest in environmental sustainability; localized interest in inventory, preservation, and planting programs; concern over view preservation and other perspectives. This project will consider information that has already been gathered about neighborhood priority issues, conduct interviews with city staff and citizens to better understand these issues, research best practices and develop a handbook of recommended strategies for addressing priority issues to be used in the city’s neighborhood planning program.
