Comprehensive Plan Book Club

Feeling discouraged about the state of the world? Drop into the Bellevue Comp Plan book Club. Bellevue is a great place to be.

What are our cities values? Do the policies reflect our City's values? What does the value mean to your neighborhood?

Comprehensive planning is a process that determines community goals and aspirations in terms of community development. The outcome of comprehensive planning is the Comprehensive Plan which dictates public policy in terms of transportation, utilities, land use, recreation, housing, and more. For the urban areas, Bellevue has embraced the tenets of New Urbanism: sustainable, diverse, walkable, compact, vibrant, mixed-use communities. These are composed of the same components as conventional development, but assembled in a more integrated fashion, in the form of complete communities. The goal is to create or rejuvenate sustainable, human-scaled places where people can live healthy and happy lives.
