Bellevue Community Info –
Bellevue has grown immensely in the last couple of years-spurred at least in part by light rail service that will reliably connect the two cities by mere minutes slated to launch in 2023. Bellevue is the fifth largest city in Washington State with a population just shy of 141,000 residents. Together with Redmond and Kirkland, it is at the core of the Eastside’s tech hub. More than 150,000 jobs are now located here and by 2035, the number of jobs in Bellevue is projected to reach 192,800. Check out this recent Seattle Times article about Downtown Bellevue.
While downtown is bustling with business, shopping and top-notch restaurants, Bellevue’s neighborhoods have maintained much of their original character. The city’s many parks and recreational facilities highlight the beauty of all things Pacific Northwest. Bellevue covers 31+ square miles between Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish. Popular Bellevue neighborhoods profiled on this site include Lakemont, Newport Shores, Somerset, West Bellevue, and Woodridge. The City of Bellevue is served in part by three school districts: Bellevue School District; Issaquah School District; and Renton School District.
