HISTORY NOTES ~~~ More than 20 years ago

BTCC members were appointed to a
Citizens Advisory Group (CAG) to
review the proposed plans to build a
freeway ramp at 130th. After months
of study and review of hundreds of
documents, CAG advised against
placing a freeway ramp at 130th.
More than 10 years ago, BTCC's over five years of work with the City of Bellevue to prevent clear cutting on large lots, resulted in the City Council approving a Tree Retention Plan for Bridle Trails (March 20, 2006). The Plan applies to approximately 900 R1 lots (35,000 square feet minimum lot size) in the Bridle Trails Subarea. The Ordinance is intended to prevent arbitrary clear cutting while giving the homeowner flexibility for normal homeowner remodeling, equestrian projects, sport courts etc. The intent is to preserve the unique wooded character of Bridle Trails.
Recently our volunteers were active in the Sound Transit Maintenance site selection process and were instrumental in helping avoid the 520 site.
BTCC was a strong partner in helping acquire and develop The Bridle Trails Corner Park.
BTCC has continued to instrumental in Bridle Trails Levy Project. BTCC has an active role in the acquisition and development of a new park at 4432 140th Ave NE.
The BTCC has a history of organizing

types of issues. If you would like to
