Cultural Conversations featured in It's Your City
Thursday, February 26, 2015

The Bellevue Diversity Initiative, adopted by the City Council late last year, seeks to leverage the city's growing diversity. "Cultural Conversations" is one program that has been doing just that over the last five years.

Cultural Conversations is featured in this month's It's Your City. Other stories in the resident newsletter include an introduction to our new economic development director and an update on the East Link project, focusing on efforts to limit the light rail line’s impacts on Bellevue neighborhoods.

Council Roundup: Working to recover Chinook salmon
Salmon spawn in Kelsey Creek.
Salmon spawn in Kelsey Creek.

Big Chinook salmon still swim up Kelsey Creek, through the backyards of Bellevue residences, and the city is doing its part to make sure the threatened species continues returning to its native stream.

The City Council on Monday reviewed progress since Bellevue signed a 10-year agreement with 27 other local governments to support recovery efforts for Puget Sound Chinook salmon in the Lake Washington-Cedar River-Sammamish River watershed. Bellevue and other cities are being asked to renew the interlocal agreement for another 10 years.
