Projects of Bellevue's Grand Connection Program
Operations & Management
The city aims to advance a long-term operations, programming, and management framework for the full route from Meydenbauer Bay Park to Eastrail. This framework would be intended to increase programming and amenities in existing spaces downtown and along the Grand Connection corridor and could be achieved by the formation of a Business Improvement District (BID) or another public-private partnership. Recently, the city has taken inventory of operations and maintenance of certain aspects of the corridor, and partnered with local property owners and the Bellevue Downtown Association to produce seasonal events, music series and contributed public seating in plazas along the route.
