The Bellevue City Council reached a momentous decision Thursday, Dec. 19, as council members unanimously voted to approve several applications related to a proposed subdivision in Slaughterhouse Canyon on land annexed into the city more than 10 years ago. The approved applications will allow for construction to begin on the first phase of the Strahorn subdivision.
“I’m really excited that we can talk about something else at the meetings now,” Mayor Ned Burns said with a laugh on Friday during a follow-up interview. “At the end of the day, it’s going to be a boost to Bellevue.”
The approved applications will allow for the first of five phases to begin, with 46 lots on 18.5 acres at the mouth of Slaughterhouse Canyon. At full buildout, the development will consist of 205 lots.
