PLUSH Committee

Permitting, Land Use, Sustainability, and Housing



Jessica Clawson is a land-use attorney with McCullough Hill Leary. Her focus is land use entitlements in complex urban regulatory environments.



The Permitting, Land Use Sustainability and Housing Committee (PLUSH) is a cross-section of the development community from both sides of the Lake with a common goal; achieving sustainable growth in Greater Bellevue.

We are a board coalition of developers, building contractors, realtors and professional services providers who have a strong belief that Bellevue will need tens of thousands of new units of housing at all price points in the coming years, and continued growth in commercial and office construction. Our regularly engages with government officials in order to support and advocate for policies in alignment with these goals.

PLUSH's drafting subcommittee prepares detailed policy proposals for consideration by staff and elected officials in Olympia and on the Eastside. If you're building in Bellevue, you need to be part of PLUSH.
