Bellevue Planning Commission will vote on an amendment to the city’s comprehensive plan on Wednesday, October 28th. This amendment will allow faith-based organizations, non-profits, and public entities to build more affordable homes on their land than are currently permitted under the city’s zoning law. Bellevue is poised to be the first city in King County to locally implement HB1337, a density bonus tool passed by the WA legislature during the 2019 session.
This is a big step forward for the largest city in East King County, which is preparing to absorb an estimated 25,000 new jobs, and multiple light rail stations in the next few years.
Show your support for this effort by emailing Bellevue Planning Commissioners today, and stay tuned for more opportunities to engage with City Council!
A partnership between Imagine Housing & St. Luke’s Lutheran Church created 63 affordable homes for Bellevue residents.
Thank you, City of Seattle, for investing BIG in affordable homes!
