Bellevue Growing at an Increasing Rate

The Wisconsin Department of Administration has recently released its 2016 population estimates for municipalities and the Village of Bellevue is continuing to show increased growth and development. Bellevue's population has been growing at an increasing rate since 2010, seeing significant growth in recent years. As can be seen in the chart below, the Village has seen an increase in the rate at which it's population is growing. For example, in 2012, the Village saw a population increase of less than a quarter-percent (0.2%). However, in both 2015 and 2016, the Village saw population increases of just under 2% (287 and 290 additional residents, respectively). An improving economy and new developments in the Village are driving the growth. Bellevue really is "A Great Place to Grow!"
