Land Use & Livability Committee

The BDA Land Use & Livability Committee tracks the latest issues regarding land use code, property developments, and public infrastructure changes to Downtown Bellevue.

At its core, the committee follows the progress of the Downtown Livability, a city initiative that reviews regulations that guide downtown development and land use activity. The Downtown Land Use Code Amendment is an important element to Downtown Livability, and the the committee has been actively engaged in the amendment process as a body of stakeholders who review  the Downtown Land Use Code Amendments - a more than 4-year long process to update the Downtown Land Use Code.
