Bellevue city staff presented a report on “Creative Edge” at the Bellevue City Council meeting last Tuesday.

The new initiative is aimed at leveraging Bellevue’s artistic, cultural and creative strengths to build a “creative economy.”

The idea is to develop a strategy that uses the arts to create economic and aesthetic value for the city. Cities have increasingly recognized the value of the arts in creating attractive communities where people want to live and work.

The project is currently in the strategy development phase. The city will host a Creative Edge workshop for arts, businesses and civic leaders from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 13 at City Hall.
