On Thursday, December 1st and Saturday, December 3rd, the public is invited to join the City of Bellevue planners for a walking tour in Downtown Bellevue, in hopes that the public can help identify ways to improve the pedestrian experience. As more residents and workers come to Downtown Bellevue, this topic becomes increasingly important.
Input from these walking tour sessions is vital and will inform the Downtown Transportation Plan Update. This plan strategizes ways to accommodate additional transportation needs in Downtown Bellevue over the next 20 years.
The walks on each day will be 90 minutes. Each walk will start with a presentation by Feet First, a walking advocacy group. This group will help to communicate the purpose of the walks and how ideas can be contributed.
On Thursday the walking tour will start at 11:45 AM at Key Center Tower (NE 6th St & 108th Ave NE). This session will focus on various locations for lunch, shopping, transit, and errands.
On Saturday the tour will begin at 9:00 AM at Top Pot Doughnuts at Washington Square (10600 NE 9th PL). This session will be more focused on residents that live in Downtown Bellevue.
The walks will happen rain or shine, so make sure to bring your rain gear just in case. (Currently the weather looks clear of rain for both days!)
