Bellevue engineer John Rusnak reported at the pre-council meeting JUne 4 that the second phase of concrete work has been completed at the Bayne Park skate plaza.

Work is beginning, he said, on designs for the third and final phase, which will include handicapped accessibility features and green infrastructure, funded by a grant from the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.


Bellevue Council voted Tuesday to delay a parking lot expansion project at Bayne Park that would cost some $21,000.

The project, according to assistant director of administrative services (DAS) Katie Hale, would make the park more handicapped accessible, creating a wider driveway, sidewalks and additional parking.

The work needs to be done in order for the borough to qualify for the skate plaza grants, Hale said, but that was news to some council members.
