Great meeting at the Crossroads community center

The city of Bellevue hosted a great event at the crossroads community center.


 Second forum focuses on neighborhood connections

Whispering Heights President and City Council Member


 Building connections among neighbors – with a special emphasis on youth, senior citizens and multicultural neighbors – is the topic of the second Bellevue Neighborhoods Forum, scheduled for Thursday, May 12, at the Crossroads Community Center.


Everyone is invited to attend the forum, which continues the community-building theme established at the first Neighborhoods Forum with author Peter Lovenheim. (See related article for results of April 6 forum.) The May 12 discussion will get underway with a panel of experts exploring ways to build strong personal and community connections that embrace the city’s diversity in an era of demographic change.


The panelists are:


Helena Stephens, Bellevue Family, Youth & Teen Services Manager;


Ralph Ibarra, Diversity Consultant; and


Joanne Donohue, Vice President of Senior Services of King County. 


Following the panel, forum participants will choose their primary area of interest – youth, aging, or multicultural relationships – and continue discussion with the panelist in that focus area.


Scheduled for 6 to 9 p.m., the forum will include dinner courtesy of sponsor Chipotle Mexican Grill. The event is free and open to the public, but reservations are required and space is limited. For reservations, contact Neighborhood Outreach at 425-452-6836 or neighborhoodoutreach@bellevuewa.gov.


Seven neighborhood sponsors also helped make the Neighborhoods Forums possible:


Surrey Downs Community Club ~ Sunset Community Association ~ Somerset Community Association Newport Hills Community Club ~ Whispering Heights & Collingwood Community Association Horizon Heights Community Association ~ Horizon Crest Community Association
