Remove Fluoride toxins from our drinking water

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 »

Quality Neighborhoods

Family Oriented Housing

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.

Housing

Newport Hills Senior Housing and Center

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!

Partnerships and Collaboration

Public Parking Garages/Coordinating Circulator busses

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 »

Make one of the streets Pedestrian only

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 »
