Bellevue City Council considers affordable housing request
March 22, 2011 · 5:05 PM
The Bellevue city Council on Monday considered a request from the chairman of the city's Planning Commission to study options for increasing the city’s supply of affordable housing.
One option would change the way the city calculates how dense new housing could be on a given property, allowing more flexibility as to the number and mix of residential units. A second option would reduce parking requirements in areas that offer transit options. The idea is to increase affordable housing by reducing the cost of new housing.
