Environmental Stewardship Plan

Environmental stewardship can be defined as our responsibility to enhance and protect our natural resources, water, air, climate, parks, and wild spaces for future generations. When it comes to preserving our environment everyone has a role to play. Using electric vehicles, recycling & composting, constructing green buildings, using renewable energy and volunteering are all ways of putting environmental stewardship into action.

The City of Bellevue has an Environmental Stewardship Plan that outlines specific actions we are taking to help people cut greenhouse gas emissions, reduce waste, increase energy efficiency, and more.

In November 2018 we began updating that plan and as part of that process we are engaging with stakeholders and residents from across Bellevue. This site serves as a hub for all of our online engagement.

Here's where you can share your story, weigh in on key issues, RSVP for events and more. We invite you to sign up so you can get updates and access all the features.

We look forward to hearing from you!
