Bellevue Considering Fee-Simple Townhouse Code Update

  • Industry Issues
  • Advocacy

Your association recently met with staff from Bellevue to discuss an update to code that would allow for fee-simple townhomes. The goal is to enable fee-simple townhome development in medium density zones where condos can already be built. Extra emphasis was placed on applying development standards to the parent lot, not to each child lot.

A timeline for the update has yet to be established, however this is on the city’s 2019 workplan.

For more information, contact King County Manager Jennifer Anderson, 425.460.8240.
