Connecting employees and businesses to the community
Below are some initiatives that the City of Bellevue is initiating, and public engagement is an important foundation toward their success.
Al Fresco Outdoor Dining
With the prospect of sunny summer days on the horizon, Bellevue launched its third season of dedicated al fresco dining space. Thanks to a partnership with the Bellevue Downtown Association (BDA), Old Bellevue merchants, and Microsoft, this year’s program will mark the beginning of a gradual transition from pandemic recovery to long-term outdoor dining operations and support.
Updates to the Comprehensive Plan happen every eight to ten years and provide the community with an opportunity to think about where we’re headed in a holistic way. The plan is meant to be a reflection of the entire community’s shared values and goals and that includes the many people, business, and organizations who help drive our thriving economy.
This entire planning process will take place over the next two years and there will be a variety of opportunities to participate. During this initial phase of engagement, we are looking to hear from people about how the city’s is doing in achieving its vision and the strengths we can build on and challenges we must address to achieve it.
Shape Bellevue's Retail Industry and it's future! The City of Bellevue is initiating a retail study to take stock of the current landscape and find potential opportunities for the future such as district building. Community input during this process is vital and is encouraged at all steps.
