Community members are invited to attend a public workshop this month to learn more and provide direct feedback on the city of Bellevue’s draft Affordable Housing Strategy.

The workshop — set for 6-8 p.m., March 21 at City Hall (450 110th Ave. NE), room 1E-108 — marks another step in the city’s effort to develop a bold affordable housing plan, one of the City Council’s 2016-17 priorities.

The workshop will kick off with a presentation at 6 p.m., providing attendees an overview of the content and purpose of the draft set of strategies.

Next, attendees will participate in a series of small group discussions focused on actions for each of the strategies.

An online open house at www.BellevueAffordableHousing.com with the same information will also be available during the last half of March to learn about and comment on the draft.

Feedback from the workshop will inform and shape the draft strategy that will be presented to the council for their consideration and, possible action, later this spring.

For more information on the city’s draft Affordable Housing Strategy, visit www.bellevuewa.gov/affordable-housing.htm or contact Michael Kattermann at mkattermann@bellevuewa.gov, or Janet Lewine at jlewine@bellevuewa.gov.
