Your Secretary spent Saturday at the first Bellevue Neighborhood Conference; learnt lots about how to engage communities and volunteers. Sessions on diversity and inclusion for cross-cultural committees or volunteer teams, Bellevue has a huge mix so don’t assume anything, you are going to make mistakes but be open and respectful to build trust. Met and now working with the “digital communications” team from Bellevue City, Bellevue is made up of over a hundred “communities”, see this list which will soon include SD again. Learnt how the City uses Facebook, Twitter etc. Have you installed the MyBellevue app? Support for Community building available across print, news and digital media and a final session from a great Park Ranger – Bellevue has some hidden park gems. Full report at the next SDCC Board Meeting.
The citizen advisory committee (CAC) working with the community to develop a vision and implementation strategies for the area surrounding the future East Main light rail station is seeking the public’s feedback on a draft plan.
