Neighborhood meeting review

A lively discussion concerning code compliance and neighbor disputes took place during the LHNA 5/16/14 meeting at Samena. Speakers Tom Campbell, Code Compliance Supervisor, and Andrew Kidde, Mediation Program Manager, shared common home/property code violation complaints, and various methods the city incorporates to find a workable solution. Residents were encouraged to report suspected code violations – nothing happens until somebody speaks up!

See you next time!

Hello Neighbors!

This was us, back in 1962. An island of new housing in the middle of a forest. Today, we’re right at the heart of a bustling Eastside. We’re Bellevue’s largest resident’s association. Our unique community council gives us our own say in Lake Hills plannng issues. We’re the best bit of Bellevue’s Lake to Lake trail system. Our mid century modern houses are of surprising historical significance and our parks and schools are second to none.

We are Lake Hills.

And now we have our own website!

Planning Commission review

A packed to capacity Lake Hills clubhouse entertained an ‘on the road’ planning commission meeting this week. Many residents testified to the commission on the issues we’ve seen in Spiritwood with individual room rentals in single family neighborhoods, and the planning commission got plenty of feedback prior to drafting up modifications to the City code designed to deal with the issues. Stay tuned for more updates.

Comprehensive Plan Update

The City’s Updated Comprehensive Plan is currently available for review by the public in draft mode.  The City will be seeking residents’ comments during the next couple of weeks.  The plan represents countless hours of effort by city staff and various boards and commissions guided by the vision of the City Council.  Many Bellevue residents made public comments at the City Council and various Boards and Commissions meetings over more than the last year.

The city will communicate the plan in the following ways:

A notice in the Seattle Times
E-mail alerts to anyone who has signed up for them through the City’s website
An open house at City Hall on February 25th
An open house at Interlake High School on February 26th
An online open house on the City’s web site which began February 13th
An article in the Bellevue Reporter on Friday 13th
A planned press release

Comments can be made from February 13th through March 3rd.

The neighborhoods, community stewardship and mobility sections will be of particular significance to Lake Hills residents.
