Starting in late November 2015, movement was detected in the Parcel 9 hillside. With safety as the top priority, immediate and ongoing mitigation measures have been taken.
The City of Issaquah recently filed a $2.88 million claim against the property owner of Parcel 9 for the damages and costs incurred by the City related to the hillside movement.
Issaquah has executed a contract with the law firm Skellenger Bender to represent the City’s interests in this matter. The parties have agreed to try mediation, which is tentatively scheduled for this fall.
