Hello Sherwood Forest,
Hopefully most of you are already aware but BTC withdraw it development application last month. I had forgotten to provide an update on our site.
The owners of the Bellevue Technology Center withdrew the application last minute before City Council could make a final recommendation. We want to thank you for all your engagement and participation. This outcome was only possible because of the strong response from the community. City leaders heard your voice, loud and clear so, THANK YOU for your support.
While we are very happy with the current outcome, we are hoping you remain involved and continue to pay attention to future communications on this important topic. BTC’s lawyers are already exploring other ways to get what they want, so chances are we will have to fight them again in the future.
Have a great summer and thanks again!
Bellevue Technology Center has once again submitted an application to amend Bellevue’s Comprehensive Plan. Once again SFCC has coordinated the response with other Northeast Bellevue neighborhoods to present a well educated and organized front that opposes the redevelopment. If approved, their application could result on the removal of the restriction currently governing the site.
We have created a “Save our Neighborhoods” campaign that we will use to counter the applicants proposal. Please help us stop BTC development by:
1.– Signing the paper and/or online petition from “Save our Neighborhoods” at: https://www.change.org/p/bellevue-city-council-save-our-neighborhoods
2.– Attend the April 24th public hearing with the Planning Commission at 6:30pm at Bellevue City Hall. If you can, wear green so everyone can see you are there in support of our neighborhoods.
Sherwood Forest Community Club Board and Trustees
The city of Bellevue, recently launched a new website were they are collecting ideas and input for their “Great Neighborhoods” program. This is another way to participate by using the tools to share ideas and map your insights on what we can do to improve our neighborhood.
