The following was submitted by the city of Bellevue:

Following a public hearing during Monday’s meeting, the Bellevue City Council unanimously passed a Land Use Code (LUC) Amendment reconciling conflicts between on-street parking requirements and the adopted Capital Investment Program (CIP) project designs for Northeast Spring Boulevard. The ordinance incorporated earlier direction from councilmembers to be narrowly tailored and correct identified conflicts in a clear, efficient and transparent manner.

The adoption comes after two study sessions and public outreach on the proposed LUC Amendment. The issue initially arose over a CIP project design that only accommodated on-street parking on one side of Northeast Spring Boulevard. Under the 2009 BelRed subarea plan, parking is required on both sides. The project, however, is consistent with the council’s pedestrian focus for BelRed and the approved CIP design for the street. The new code will go into effect on Dec. 14.

More details on the passed amendment can be found in the agenda materials.
