The Issaquah City Council will hold a second public hearing Feb. 21, 2017, on a proposal to add 100 more residential units to a development in the Issaquah Highlands called Westridge.
The developer, Polygon Northwest, purchased 100 Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) certificates from Regal Bank — which helped preserve forested land on Park Pointe — for its Westridge development.
This development is separate from the Shelter Holdings land, which is located closer to Highlands Drive.
The additional TDRs would increase the number of residential units allowed onsite from 265 to 365.
To meet the Issaquah Highlands 30 percent affordable housing requirement, Polygon also submitted a proposal to develop 25 affordable units and a five-member group home on a parcel of City-owned land in the highlands.
During its Jan. 18 meeting, the City Council's Land and Shore Committee recommended denying Polygon's request, citing concerns with increased density on that site.
The second public hearing will be held at 7 p.m. Feb. 21 at Council Chambers, 135 E. Sunset Way.
