Wilburton Eastrail SurveyPosted on August 30, 2021
Image and text from the City of Bellevue:
Built on an historic former railroad, the Eastrail trail will eventually connect Eastside cities from Renton all the way to Woodinville and Snohomish County. But the Eastrail has the potential to be much more than a trail.
In 2018 the Wilburton Commercial Area Citizen Advisory Committee presented recommendations to the City Council that envision the Eastrail trail as a signature public space that draws people not just for commuting but to linger and enjoy amenities, art, nature and retail, and community events all along the route. To help make sure this vision is realized the City of Bellevue is partnering with King County Parks and Sound Transit to develop a vision for the portion of the Eastrail trail that runs from SE 5th Street to NE 12th Street in Wilburton.
The goals of this effort are to understand what the community would like to see in this space, how the trail could integrate with surrounding businesses, and how the trail can be a welcoming space for people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities. We want to hear from the community about what they would like to see in this section of the Eastrail. Take our short survey by September 3rd to share your feedback and ideas.
