Let's say YES to housing, shelter, and help for our Bellevue neighbors!
This petition made change with 163 supporters!
For years community members and elected leaders in the City of Bellevue and King County have been talking, planning, and exploring options for responding to the crisis of homelessness and the need for affordable housing. Working in partnership, the City of Bellevue, King County, the Public Health Department, Congregations for the Homeless, and Imagine Housing developed a proposal that will combine affordable housing, overnight shelter, and supportive services to meet the needs of our neighbors who are homeless. This process has included many public and private partners, is based on best practices in our region and nationally, and has been thoughtful and thorough.
We are asking the members of the Bellevue City Council to move from talking, planning, and researching alternatives to making a decision and taking action on Monday, April 17, 2017. (Please join us in person at Bellevue City Hall on Monday night if you can. We'll be there from 5.30 on, with buttons for all who wish to show support!)
Please add a personalized note to your signature, and be sure to note if you are an Eastside neighbor! Thanks.
Dear Mayor John Stokes, Deputy Mayor John Chelminiak, Councilmember
Conrad Lee, Councilmember Jennifer Robertson, Councilmember Lynne Robinson, Councilmember Ernie Simas, and Councilmember Kevin Wallace:
We urge the Bellevue City Council to take action on Monday evening, April 17, to move the Eastgate housing, shelter, and services project forward! Please vote YES: YES for homes, YES for shelter and services for people who need them, and YES to moving this excellent project at the Eastgate site ahead without delay. Two and a half years of talking, planning, due diligence, and exploring options is enough. We need our community leaders to stand firm in support of this well thought out project and bring Bellevue neighbors inside to safety in housing and shelter with services as soon as possible.
