Project ideas will be able to be submitted through May 18th but let’s not waste time. So let’s talk about it!
Past NEP projects:

City staff will provide attendees with a brief overview of the program guidelines and schedule, answer questions, and invite folks to share, discuss and submit project ideas. City project managers will be available in breakout rooms for specific project discussion.
Bring your ideas and brainstorm about projects you'd like to see funded with the $217,000 in funds available to your neighborhood.
Questions? Please contact Theresa Cuthill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Bellevue Police Department and SCA have arranged for an online townhall-style meeting for Wednesday April 27th at 7:00pm.
Topics to be addressed will include current reported criminal activities in our neighborhood and police responses. Please plan to attend and ask any questions you may have or comment on your experience.
Details for joining the online call will be emailed and posted on the SCA website the day of the event. We hope you will join in the discussion.
Goodwill will bring a truck to Somerset Elementary School on Saturday, March 26th, from 2 to 5 pm to accept donations of used goods.
You can bring almost everything to the donation drive including clothes, shoes, books, household items, linens, small electronics, exercise equipment, rugs, bed frames, toys, lamps, and small furniture (No bigger than a side table). Please note textiles (e.g. clothing) should be donated in bags with nothing else mixed in. Shoes should be separated out into their own bags as well. Separating these items out ahead of time will save a lot of work at the event. As part of the E-cycle Washington program, Goodwill collects televisions, computer monitors, desktop computers, laptops, and other electronics that are still in working condition. For questions, email email@example.com.
The Goodwill truck will be accepting donation items at the staff and school bus parking lot. Please see this map for the exact location and the driving direction.
We are looking for volunteers for this event. If you would like to help, please sign up HERE. We appreciate your support!
