Thank you to everyone who participated in our questionnaire and interactive map. Your input will help inform future land use alternatives and policy development for the Wilburton study area. A summary of our questionnaire, interactive map, and other Phase 1 engagement activities can be downloaded here.


This initiative will implement the vision established by the Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) in 2018 by amending the existing Wilburton/N.E. 8th Street Subarea Plan and BelRed Subarea Plan, the Comprehensive Plan Map, and the City’s Land Use Code. These amendments will consider how the Wilburton study area’s future is key to implementing the citywide growth strategy for housing and jobs for the next 20 years.

This initiative launched on April 25, 2022, and we want to hear more from you about how we can enhance and implement this vision. Updates will consider housing policy, affordable housing, growth targets, Grand Connection impacts and integration, sustainability, equitable access, multimodal transportation, and universal design.




Vision

The Wilburton study area will become “Bellevue’s next urban mixed-use community that enhances livability, promotes healthy living, supports economic vitality, and serves the needs of a diverse and growing population. As Bellevue’s cultural and innovative hub, it serves as a regional and international destination that connects people and fosters community by leveraging its existing assets to define a distinctive sense of place and character”.

  • CLOSED: This questionnaire concluded on December 15, 2022.

    Thank you to everyone who participated in this questionnaire. We will be sharing results soon.



    The Wilburton study area is envisioned to be “Bellevue’s next urban mixed-use community that enhances livability, promotes healthy living, supports economic vitality, and serves the needs of a diverse and growing population.” In 2018, a council-appointed citizen advisory committee (CAC) developed transportation, land use, and urban design recommendations for City Council consideration to guide the implementation of this vision. The City is building off this 2018 effort, and will consider and adopt changes and updates to policies and codes to facilitate redevelopment in the Wilburton study area.

    We appreciate your time answering questions for each of these topics to help the City better understand how to best implement this vision. Your input will help inform future land use alternatives and policy development for the Wilburton study area. This questionnaire should take you 10-15 minutes to complete.

    After completing the questionnaire, there will be a separate Interactive Map for you to identify opportunities and challenges for implementing the Wilburton study area vision.
