Meeting seeks thoughts on city's comprehensive plan

Ever think about what Bellevue will be like in the future? Will cars drive themselves on Lake Hills Boulevard or will your home’s lights be controlled by the Internet? The next 30 years are sure to bring dramatic changes.

Bellevue city planners want to hear residents' hopes, concerns and visions about the future as they begin to update the Comprehensive Plan, the city’s vision for the future. A “scoping” meeting, one of the first steps in the process to define what the update should address, will be held from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29 at Crossroads Community Center, 16000 NE 10th St.

The Comprehensive Plan will look to what Bellevue will be like in 2030, 2040 and beyond. It helps the city plan for places to live, learn and play, for jobs and a strong local economy, and for creating and preserving a healthy environment.

Residents' participation is considered vital by city officials to provide thoughts on what issues should be the focus of the update, to help guide and shape the plan, and to ensure that the plan continues to embrace the community’s vision.
