the bellevue/redmond area is a great place to live with lots of access to important things like green spaces, entertainment, and services. it is however lacking in meaningful / healthy places for people under 21 to spend time, and the deforestation of this area in the name of real estate is depressing to say the least (ie. snoqualmie, issaquah). Better (faster, cheaper, more accessible/useful) public transportation is required.

We have big employers such as Amazon, Starbucks, and Microsoft but you cannot get a job if you are under 16 or sometimes 18.
There are many opportunities for youths to be active. There are multiple hospitals in the area that are very nice visually.
