148th Ave Vision Project

Bellevue citizens have created a visionary plan to preserve the beauty of 148th Ave for the next 50 years.  The proposal includes three competitive bids from directional drilling companies who can install conduit underground at a reasonable cost.  Although we can’t save the trees PSE has already cut down, an underground solution would allow new full-size trees to be replanted instead of dwarf trees that PSE proposes.

Our proposal is being shared with PSE, the Bellevue City Council, East Bellevue Community Council, Lake Hills Neighborhood Association, the Washington State Utilities and Transportation Commission, state legislators, local news outlets, and potential corporate sponsors.  We see a great opportunity for PSE, the City of Bellevue, citizens, and businesses to work together on a solution that we and future generations can be proud of.

The proposal is available for your review.

If you support this vision, please write a short email to majorprojects@pse.com, council@bellevuewa.gov, ebcc@bellevuewa.gov, comments@utc.wa.gov, editor@bellevuereporter.com, and info@300trees.org (to start your email, use this link, or this link for MS Outlook). You can state that the underground solution proposed by 300trees.org is the best option for Bellevue, the environment, and future generations, and the planning effort for this project did not provide an opportunity for you to participate in the way you expect.


PSE is cutting down 300 trees. We stand with our partners in opposition.
