If you are of the mindset that the growth of Bellevue has become too much - well, you just might want to consider relocating, because we are only at the beginning of the growth of this beautiful city. The City of Bellevue has done an outstanding job of making city data available and easily accessible through the Bellevue Open Data website.
Older single family homes are being renovated and replaced as the city modernizes. The average square footage for these homes is over 4700sf.
The map below shows all permit for Single Family Homes within the city of Bellevue.
Along with permit data the site provides information on other city development indicators including business, crime, labor, and health data. I could easily spend a week exploring the site - and I am sure that I will.
