Zoning/Code Enforcement

While these two functions—zoning and code enforcement—are distinct municipal areas, they both affect residents’ quality of life, new construction throughout town, and how we interact with our neighbors. These functions help ensure that new and remodeled buildings in Bellevue are safe and habitable while providing research and strategic direction to the long-term plan of our community, among other day-to-day tasks.

Form-Based Code Info

The regulations for the form-based code can be found here. Below are some of the studies and documents that were developed during the city’s public input sessions on the code.
