Projects and Progress
Visitor moorage at the Bellevue Marina on Meydenbauer Bay opened to the boating public in April 2014. Over 600 boaters used the facility during 2014. Visitor moorage accommodates 14 boats between Piers 2 and 3 in the Bellevue Marina. Access, moorage and restrooms meet ADA accessibility guidelines. Design of the facility was funded by Washington State's Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO). For hours, rules and other marina information, view the Bellevue Marina web page.
Meydenbauer Bay Park Development - Phase 1
In order to implement the adopted Master Plan for Meydenbauer Bay Park Phase 1, Bellevue Parks & Community Services contracted with Anchor QEA, LLC, a consulting firm with extensive experience developing waterfront parks in the region. The Anchor team has been tasked with providing detailed designs and options consistent with the Master Plan.
On December 3, 2014, an open house was held at City Hall to share Anchor's first designs for the project with Bellevue residents. Designs were divided into five groups, characterizing a zone or topic relating to the future park. Each of the open house's five stations included design boards displayed on easels and a table with drawings on which attendees could make comments. Representatives from the Parks Department and the Anchor team provided information, answered questions, and recorded comments from attendees. Comment cards were also available.
The open house format allowed people to come at a time most convenient for them. Over 60 people attended the event, and many comments were recorded.
The design boards are linked below in the five groupings presented at the open house, along with recorded comments relelvant to each group. Additional details have been added to some boards to include information that staff provided at the open house.
