Bellevue reviews south Kirkland Park-&-Ride plan

The Bellevue City Council hosted Eastside officials Dec. 13 for an update on plans to expand the South Kirkland Park-&-Ride and include a residential development as part of the new complex.

Bellevue's stems from the fact that the seven-acre, 600-space lot is at the north edge of the city, at 108th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 38th Place, just north of SR 520.

The site is divided by the Bellevue-Kirkland boundary, with about half the facility in each city.

Plans call for expanding the park-and-ride by 250 spaces, and creating about 200 housing units and approximately 12,000 square feet of commercial space, both which would be on the Kirkland side of the property.

Kirkland Mayor Joan McBride and other city officials, along with King County Councilmember Jane Hague, presented a set of draft principles regarding redevelopment of the park-and-ride.

The council is expected to vote on the principles in January.
