The city of Bellevue will host an open house on the East Main transit-oriented development area from 4-6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 14 at Bellevue City Hall, Room 1E-108.

The East Main Station Area Plan, developed through the efforts of a Citizen Advisory Committee, contains strategies for redevelopment near the future light rail station located at Main Street and 112th Avenue Northeast.

In order to realize the vision of a transit-oriented development area, the Planning Commission will consider and recommend policies and regulations for new development in the area.

The East Main Station Area Plan was approved by the Bellevue City Council in August 2016. The Planning Commission will consider amendments the zoning map and zoning code.

The open house is an opportunity for residents and businesses to:

• View plans about potential type and size of future development

• Learn how to provide input to the Planning Commission

The open house will be held prior to the Planning Commission meeting at 6:30 p.m. in 1E-113.
