Each year the Parks and Recreation department conducts a comparative study for the services we deliver to our community. This review employs a ‘best practices’ approach to inform our annual fees which are adopted by City Council in the annual budget.
In previous years, one exception to the annual review were pass fees. Subsequently, these fees have fallen below current market value. In addition to bringing these fees current, the Parks and Recreation Department will also implement the Resident/General (non-Resident) fee structure for passes to provide consistency with other fees for services throughout the Department.
A summary of the new pass fees can be previewed in the chart below:
- Term passes which expire in 2019 and are renewed prior to December 31, 2019, will be sold under the 2019 rates.
- Seniors who turn 62 in 2019 and purchase a Gold Pass prior to December 31, 2019 will be sold a Gold Pass under the 2019 rate.
- Current passes are eligible to be renewed at their expiration date.
Fees for programming and passes enable us to provide the best services possible to you, your family and the greater community of Issaquah. All 2020 fees will become effective on Jan. 1, 2020.
