Bellevue Essentials provides an entry point for emerging community leaders. This transformational eight-week program highlights the structures and inner workings of city government in many arenas. Topics include demographics, public process, city planning, economic development, environmental stewardship, finance and transportation.
In September 2014, a learning community of 34 students will begin their journey to create relationships and build familiarity with government process and decision making. Class members will graduate with a full understanding of the “nuts and bolts” of city government and be ready to get more involved in their local community. The 2014 class has been selected and will graduate in November, 2014.
Brochure and application for the 2015 Bellevue Essentials class will be available in May 2015. For more information or to be added to the email list to receive information on the 2015 Bellevue Essentials program, contact Julie Ellenhorn at 425-452-5372 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
