Quality built and natural environment iconBellevue has it all. From a livable high-rise urban environment to large wooded lots in an equestrian setting, people can find exactly where they want to live and work in Bellevue. The diverse and well-balanced mix of business and commercial properties and a wide variety of housing types attract workers and families who desire a safe, sustainable and accessible community.

Bellevue has an abundance of parks and natural open space. Known as a “City in a Park,” our park system is one of the best in the nation due to its high park acreage-to-population ratio. From neighborhood walking paths and forested trails to a regional waterfront park, we enjoy a variety of recreational opportunities within walking distance of our homes and businesses.

Bellevue is a “smart city” with a clean, high-quality environment and excellent and reliable infrastructure that supports our vibrant and growing city, including high-tech connectivity. The city has a connected multi-modal transportation system, which blends seamlessly with its buildings, plazas and parks.

Whether it’s an urban high rise, a classic Bellevue rambler, or a historic resource, the constant is our people. Our neighborhoods and businesses transcend age, ethnicity and
culture to create safe, welcoming places to live and work.

Council’s Two-Year Priorities for High-Quality Built and Natural Environment

  1. Assess the unique housing needs of our city and region, and create an affordable housing strategic action plan by 2016 and implementation in 2017;
  2. Construct Phase One of Meydenbauer Bay Park and complete the Downtown Park circle and gateway by the end of 2018;
  3. Bring a Smart City strategy to the Council for its consideration for inclusion in the 2017/2018 budget; and
  4. Complete the Downtown Livability code amendment project in 2016.
