Who is WSSA?

WSSA is organized by citizens to alert you to the City of Bellevue’s proposed regulations of our shoreline areas. The purpose of this website is to keep you informed. The menu located in the banner at the top of this page, will guide you to research and links that will help you understand the implications of these regulations and assist you in making decisions regarding your property and rights. This site also provides you with the links to communicate directly with the Bellevue City Council under the tab Speak Up.

Why should I be interested?

Do you own property within 200 feet of the waterfront? Under state mandate, the city of Bellevue is required to regulate what you can and cannot do on your private property via the SMP. The update of these burdensome regulations were finalized in 2018. As with the evolution of most government programs, we will be getting more regulations, not less. Knowing this, why wouldn’t you be interested? Why wouldn’t you want to help influence how the City of Bellevue regulates your private property?
