Public Hearing: Zoning Changes West of Highlands

The City Council is holding a hearing 7 p.m. July 17 at council chambers, 135 E. Sunset Way, to hear the public’s input on a proposal to change the zoning of some land (see map) between the Issaquah Highlands and Interstate 90.

The land is currently not located in the City of Issaquah – but instead remains an “island” of King County. The City’s proposed zoning would only apply if (and when) annexation to Issaquah takes place.

The county land is currently zoned for mineral or residential (one or four dwelling units per acre), depending on the parcel.

The City’s proposed new zoning (see map) would enable:
  • Land just west of Issaquah Highlands to become a new elementary school
  • The existing King County’s Road Maintenance Site near I-90 to become business offices/garages for a private utility (freeing up land for affordable housing in Central Issaquah) 
  • A future City water reservoir to be built near I-90
  • Several remaining parcels now zoned for residential development to become open space 
An agenda for the hearing will be posted online by July 14. A second hearing will be held Sept. 5 before the City Council could take action.

Those who aren’t able to attend the hearing can also send their feedback to Trish Heinonen by Sept. 5, 2017.
