Community Participation Needed for Bellevue Riverfront Development Plans

What's next for the undeveloped portion of Bellevue's Harbor Greene?

That has been the topic of conversation - and a lengthy legal battle - for years. But now, things are finally moving and the City of Bellevue wants the community to participate in the planning process.

Kevin Wright, who serves on the Bellevue Urban Renewal and Community Development Agency board, has volunteered to lead the community engagement efforts. The city says not to expect a bunch of boring meetings, but rather a series of fun and dynamic engagement activities over the next month or so.

Bellevue purchased the property from the Ackermann Group, developer of Harbor Greene, as part of a recent settlement.

The first event is Wednesday, March 22, at 7 p.m. inside the community room of Daymar College (119 Fairfield Avenue, 4th floor). The organizers will share a list of all the engagement activities and events.

Plans for such an effort were first announced in February and took further steps earlier this month.

Jeffrey Sackenheim from SHP Leading Design and Joe Nickol from MKSK are the consultants. The results of this will help shape the RFQ sent out to developers.
