Environmental Stewardship Plan

Protecting and enhancing the environment is a core value for the City of Bellevue. The Environmental Stewardship Plan serves as a road map to a healthy, livable, sustainable, and prosperous future as a city in a park.

Last fall we heard from over 400 people and the message was clear. Residents, major employers, small business, non-profit leaders, and regional partners all believe that Bellevue should strive to be a leader in sustainability and environmental stewardship. We are excited to continue working with residents and stakeholders.

With direction from City Council we have drafted ambitious goals and we are ready for the next phase of community engagement – which focuses on potential actions for achieving those goals

Please check out this site to share your story, weigh in on key issues, RSVP for events and more. Follow this project to get regular updates.

We look forward to hearing from you!
