NEW TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS THROUGH SOUTH BELLEVUE:  Bellevue recently mailed this flyer to residents of Enatai and Beaux Arts outlining a pilot program for traffic restrictions along Bellevue Way and 108th Ave SE that will impact the flow of vehicles through our area.  The flyer asks that feedback during the pilot be offered through the website at to help the Bellevue Transportation Department evaluate the pilot's effectiveness.  You can also contact the parties listed on the flyer to offer feedback.

TRAFFIC DATA COLLECTION:  Have you seen the traffic-data collection wires in the streets at the entrances to the Village?  The Council recently purchased and installed equipment that counts  the number of cars entering Beaux Arts, so that they can be aware in real time of the volume of cut-through traffic in our vicinity caused by construction on South Bellevue Way.  The Council will evaluate the data collected, use it to guide decisions about the need to take action, and employ it to back up our correspondence about the need for traffic mitigation with both the City of Bellevue and Sound Transit during their respective construction projects.

TRAFFIC MITIGATION: The City of Bellevue Transportation Department and Sound Transit's East Link Light Rail group are tasked with monitoring the traffic impacts that result from the East Link project.  Please visit for up-to-date information.

The South Bellevue Neighborhood Traffic Mitigation Committee is specifically focused on traffic impacts in the greater Enatai area.  Please visit for up-to-date information about that committee's work.

The Beaux Arts Council is reviewing ways of evaluating the volume and impact of traffic cutting through Beaux Arts during Sound Transit's construction.  At their April 2017 meeting, they authorized the purchase of traffic counters that will be used to establish the current volume of traffic using both 108th Ave SE and the 104th/SE28th/105th SE arterial.  After the baseline counts are obtained, periodic counts will be taken so that the Council can evaluate volume changes and determine appropriate action.

WHICH MAILBOX IS WHICH?  There continues to be a lot of confusion about which box to use for various payments, correspondence, and outgoing mail.  Here is a brief reminder about which box to use:

bulletWATER PAYMENTS:  All payments for water bills may be placed in the locked box on the pole near the mailstand across from the water tower.  This box is identified as "TOWN OF BEAUX ARTS VILLAGE / BEAUX ARTS WATER DEPARTMENT".  You may also continue mailing your payments to BAWD, 10530 SE 27th Street, Beaux Arts, WA  98004.
bulletTOWN CORRESPONDENCE:  Correspondence intended for the Town Council, staff, and other boards and commissions may be placed in the locked box on the pole near the mailstand across from the water tower.  This box is the same as for WATER PAYMENTS and is identified as "TOWN OF BEAUX ARTS VILLAGE / BEAUX ARTS WATER DEPARTMENT".  You may also mail correspondence to Town of Beaux Arts Village, 10550 SE 27th Street, Beaux Arts, WA 98004.
bulletWABA PAYMENTS AND CORRESPONDENCE:  All correspondence and payments to the Western Academy of Beaux Arts (WABA) may be placed in the locked box on the mailstand on SE 28th Street just west of 104th Avenue SE.  This box is identified as "WABA".  You may also mail payments and correspondence to WABA, 10100 SE 28th Pl, Beaux Arts, WA  98004.
bulletOUTGOING MAIL:  All outgoing mail, i.e. stamped mail that you want the postal carrier to take to the Post Office for delivery to another address should be placed in the green mailbox on the left end of the mailstand on SE 28th Street just west of 104th Ave SE.  This mailbox is identified as "OUTGOING MAIL" and "U.S. MAIL".

Please remember that the Town of Beaux Arts Village and the Western Academy of Beaux Arts are two completely separate entities.  Each employs its own clerks to conduct business in their own spaces.  If you place mail for one entity in the box of the other, the clerks will do their best to place your mail in the correct box in a timely manner.  But delays are inevitable, so please use the correct box to avoid possible late charges and/or lost mail.
