As Bellevue continues to emerge from the pandemic, the city is working to make its economy more resilient by supporting innovation and growth among artists, businesses, entrepreneurs and residents. This economic development focus is highlighted in the Fall/Winter issue of It’s Your City, which is hitting Bellevue mailboxes this week.
Also in this issue:
- Proposed budget: Details about the preliminary 2023-24 budget, which proposed continued spending for council priorities including environmental stewardship, public safety, affordable housing and equity.
- Parks levy: Readers learn about the funding measure on the November ballot that proposes new investments in Bellevue’s parks and open space system, including new parks, trails and facilities.
- East Link delay: Problems with the supports for the East Link track at both ends of the Interstate 90 floating bridge will delay opening of Sound Transit’s Eastside light rail line by at least a year.
- Council Corner: Mayor Lynne Robinson explains how the city is expanding affordable housing options to address the crisis facing Bellevue and other cities around the region and the country.
To better capture the range of events and programs covered in each issue of It’s Your City, we’re associating them with seasons (fall/winter, spring/summer and summer/winter) instead of months as we've done in the past. The spring/summer issue will come out in February.
