Great Neighborhoods - NE Bellevue

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link
Large group of people sitting at different tables and having a discussion.

1 Year, 11 events, 2 mailings, over 350 participants, and countless ideas.

That's what has gone into crafting the Northeast Bellevue Neighborhood Plan. The team is grateful for the participation of so many community members who shared the vision, ideas, and feedback. The plan is a reflection of everything we heard along the way. You can read about all the activities and feedback in the Engagement Report.

Neighborhood Plans are part of the city's Comprehensive Plan. They are used by city staff, developers, and other stakeholders to guide decision making about things like sidewalks, parks, housing, and more. The plans help make sure that as a neighborhood evolves the changes reflect the hopes of residents.

Now that the plan has been adopted it is part of Volume 2 of the city's Comprehensive Plan.

Great Neighborhoods – Many Voices. One Vision. Our Future

    Wondering through Sherwood forest

    by Lee Sargent, over 1 year ago

    Walking through the neighborhood just off the busy streets of NE 24th and 164th Ave NE makes me aware of the benefits of the tall fir trees. The amount of sound that is deadened as I move away from those streets. The height that exists above. In the winter the snow (when it accumulates) is moderated by the trees opening spaces for walking and protection. The cooling provided in the summer sun. The signs of life that are abundant around them with squirrels, birds, rabbits, etc. I live on the busy street but it is easy to find the quiet... Continue reading

    Walking the Dog

    by Lee Sargent, over 1 year ago

    In my portion of Northeast Bellevue, I have had many opportunities to walk the dog(s) around the various streets nearby. I noticed a distinct difference in this process when sidewalks were put in along NE 24th next to Unigard and Interlake High School. (I live across the street from Interlake and walked to work at Unigard) It changed from a country road where cars were more interested in getting where they were going and pedestrians annoyance to a more formal regard for each. Pedestrians became more common, runners more common, small groups of people walking and other dog walkers. Their... Continue reading

    Preserving open space

    by Pete Ryan, about 2 years ago

    We moved to the region in 1997 and have lived in our current home since 2007. Over that time we’ve seen Bellevue evolve from suburban community of Seattle to grow into a distinct community focused on tech and the cultural diversity of a new generation of people from throughout the country and many from other countries. Our diversity is our strength yet our sustained growth is going to be difficult to be ‘sustainable’. The Growth Management Act constrained some of the tremendous growth of the past quarter century but it is now encubant on our community to come together to... Continue reading

    NE Bellevue values nature

    by Els, about 2 years ago

    NE Bellevue has a lot of large trees. We value those trees, our parks and open spaces. You know you are approaching home when you see the gorgeous trees along West Lake Sammamish Parkway, Northup Way, NE 24th Street, or when you see the beautiful meadow and forest at the Bellevue Technology Center. We share our neighborhood with wildlife, such as birds, rabbits, deer, squirrels, cayotes and bobcats.

    Some of us are fortunate to have magnificent views of the mountains or Lake Sammamish.

    This is primarily a single family and low-density multi-family neighborhood where residents invest in their yards and... Continue reading

    Solar power!

    by Benjamin Mousseau, over 2 years ago

    One thing that makes me happy to see on neighborhood walks is solar panels on neighbors' roofs! :) It fills me with a little spark of joy to see that people are transitioning to a decarbonized future. And I know that home solar panels are a pretty new thing in the overall history of our neighborhood, but I think that they are here to stay and will always be a big part of what makes Northeast Bellevue amazing!
