Triangle keeps the public involved as the City of Bellevue works to reduce flooding from Lower Coal Creek in the Newport Shores neighborhood.
The City of Bellevue is working to reduce flooding in the Newport Shores neighborhood. Triangle helped the City incorporate public input and concerns as the City developed potential solutions to flooding issues. Based on technical expertise and public feedback, the City decided to build new bridges over Lower Coal Creek and construct new stormwater outfalls. To keep the public involved in the design and construction of these projects, Triangle develops website updates, writes articles for the local neighborhood newsletter, creates easy-to-understand fact sheets, facilitates public forums and open houses, and organizes small-group meetings with residents.
