About the Session

The Bellevue Mobility Implementation Plan (MIP) is a performance measurement and prioritization system that aligns transportation investments with land use; providing the platform for Bellevue to meet the multimodal future envisioned in the Comprehensive Plan. You will hear from the former chair of the Transportation Commission and project staff about how the MIP establishes goals for mobility, defines Performance Metrics and Targets for each mode, and categorizes and maps Performance Management Areas that reflect planned land use and mobility options. The MIP describes a process to identify and prioritize projects that address Performance Target gaps. Within the MIP is an outline for a new multimodal concurrency program that provides for an adequate "Supply" of transportation of all modes to meet the "Demand" from growth. Ultimately, the Bellevue MIP will achieve a complete and connected multimodal transportation system.
