Neighborhood Walks Return: Stroll Along Bellevue Sidewalks with City Leadership

Neighborhood Walks Return:
Stroll Along Bellevue Sidewalks with City Leadership

After a year of webinars and virtual walks, the City of Bellevue is inviting residents to join City Manager Brad Miyake and other city leadership for in-person guided walking tours through Bellevue neighborhoods. Starting this month, the Neighborhood Walks program provides an opportunity for immersive discussions on the current developments and issues Bellevue neighborhoods face.

Program coordinators are excited to welcome attendees back for an in-person experience. In response to resident requests, city leaders kicked off Summer Chats in 2017 to foster a constructive dialogue, and continued the conversation in 2018 with the first round of Neighborhood Walks across six neighborhoods. Every year since, the Neighborhood Walks initiative strives to strengthen the relationship between residents and city leadership by creating space for productive discussions in Bellevue neighborhoods.

No registration or tickets required for in-person tours. Stretch your legs, mingle with other residents and take advantage of a unique opportunity to explore the different concerns and priorities each neighborhood presents firsthand.

To view resident comments, questions and other records from previous walking reports, visit the Neighborhood Walks page.
