PROTEST on Tuesday night!

Please join us to protest the destruction of 300 trees to build a transmission line on one of Bellevue’s most beautiful urban boulevards at Bellevue City Hall, Tuesday, Feb. 21, at 7:30 pm.

The council is poised to deny funding for an appeal of an adverse court ruling that would allow PSE to remove 300 trees on 148th Avenue and NE 8th Street, permanently altering the park-like atmosphere of these beautiful streets. PSE wants to build a transmission line along this route where there are currently no poles and wires, by design. More info here:

A majority of our council members believe there is nothing they can do to save our trees. Come show them they must try harder! There are much better alternatives. If we don’t show up in big numbers, these solutions won’t be pursued and we will lose these trees forever!

You can make a difference

  1. EMAIL both councils at council@bellevuewa.gov and ebcc@bellevuewa.gov. Tell them you want solutions that preserve our trees.
  2. RSVP for our protest at info@cense.org. Simply tell us the number of people in your party. If more than 100 people respond by Thursday evening, we will encourage local TV news stations to cover the protest.

On Tuesday, we will meet outside Bellevue City Hall at 7:30 pm (450 110th Ave NE). Please wear something orange if you can. Bring your own sign. At 8:00, we will go inside to support our speakers as they address the council. Only three speakers are allowed to speak for 3 minutes each. We should be done by 8:30.

Can you spare an hour to save these trees for future generations?

Please remember to RSVP to info@cense.org. And thank you for doing your part to protect our “City in a Park.”
