Meydenbauer Bay Park Public Art Meeting - August 13, 2015
Projects and Progress
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.
The pilot ranger program providing staffing at the City's visitor moorage is up and running again this year. General hours of operation through September 7, 2015 are:
4 p.m. to 10 p.m.* - Wednesday through Friday
2 p.m. to 10 p.m.* - Saturday and Sunday
*On-site staffing may be less in inclement weather or due to lack of visiting boats in advance of closing, etc., but generally these will be the ranger hours.
Please remember that the summer rangers are not equipped to handle law enforcement issues. Please contact Bellevue Police at 425-452-6917 for enforcement, or call 911 for emergencies.

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 completed 50% of the design and has prepared permit applications for City, State, and Federal permits.
We have submitted these drawings and various reports to City, State, and Federal permit agencies, and permit reviews are ongoing. A public meeting was held on June 4, 2015 to present designs submitted for City permits. Development Services is the City's permitting department. The assigned planner for Meydenbauer Bay Park Phase 1 opened the meeting and explained the permitting process our permits will undergo, including opportunities for public comment and participation. View the presentation from the June 4 public meeting. The current schedule is on the last slide.
On December 3, 2014, an open house was held at City Hall to share Anchor's first designs for the Meydenbauer Bay Park Phase 1 project with Bellevue residents. Designs were divided into groups, characterizing a zone or topic relating to the future park. Each open house station 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. Public comments influenced the updated designs submitted in the permit applications. A few photos from the open house are shown below.
