The city of Bellevue receives their water from the Seattle City Water system. Something our annual water quality report does state. Taking on the topic of Fluoride toxin in our water system would require the city of Seattle to cease the use of Fluoride toxins. We deserve the right to choose what is in our water. We deserve the right to choose how we care for our dental health. Why does the government need to spend the ...more »
Consider some kind of incentive for new development in downtown Bellevue to include three-bedroom apartments (or larger.)
I believe there are a lot of families who would enjoy living in the downtown area, but cannot fit in to a two bedroom apartment. The few available three bedroom properties are so popular that there is a wishlist for their units.
Put mixed-used retail and senior housing in the old Red Apple shopping center currently for sale. Add a central plaza with lots of benches and a senior center. The only senior center in Bellevue is way up at the north end. We've got elderly people who can't drive down here, too!
Do not demolish the old bridge after the new one is completed, instead use it as a place for entertainment, park, night market, or just a viewing platform.
Bellevue needs more bike lanes so that kids and adults can stay active and improve their health, when biking to and from school and work. Many kids and adults have weight problems due to inactivity. By increasing the numbers bike lanes it will not only make it safer to bike; also the cost to treat common diseases resulting from inactivity and obesity will decrease such as diabetes and coronary diseases. Other benefits ...more »
A system of circulator Buses connecting Greater Downtown Neighborhoods like Vue Crest, Surrey Downs, Bellecrest, Northtowne, and Enatai is necessary to implement use of the downtown as their commercial space, while keeping local car trips off downtown streets. Link the Library, Post Office, Bel Sq, Olde Bellevue, Downtown Park, City Hall, East Link Stations, Meydenbauer Center, and the Hospital District with short ...more »
The city should implement a collaboration of properties/businesses/developers to provide public parking for the Downtown Park/Old Bellevue, in the area of East Link/City Hall and in the southeast quadrant of Downtown. Retail suffers from lack of and abuse of proprietary parking. Adjacent neighborhoods suffer from spillover parking. One should not have to move their car to patronize several destinations within a short ...more »
Attract via code incentives, planning, collaboration, and partnership, a university that will develop a major portion of the southeast quadrant of downtown to include high rise housing, classrooms, labs, etc. in addition to other tenants, retail and open space, resulting in a true liberal arts/cultural environment often identified with college town life. Primary and secondary education as well as music, art and theatre ...more »

As the State's 5th largest city and with growing tourism interest, Bellevue needs to plan for a permanent Heritage Center - a place to share the Bellevue and Eastside story. Cultural amenities are strong economic and tourism drivers. By making connections to the past, history museums enhance community identity, providing a sense of place and belonging. In addition to offering public and educational programming, a Heritage ...more »
Create someplace in Bellevue where visitors, residents and workers can go to take in the views- the top of a high rise apartment, hotel or commercial building (ala the Empire State Building). It could be free or a small fee, maybe a restaurant or lounge.
The proposition is to close one of the streets in downtown Bellevue for automotive traffic and accommodate it for pedestrian only use. This tendency can be seen worldwide. Large cities like NY and Moscow are transforming their streets to attract people to downtown, help local businesses grow customer base, host cultural events on the streets (free band stands and outside art exhibitions). 106th Ave NE from 4th to 8th ...more »
