How do you think the central area plan will affect the city in years to come?

It will surely contribute to the city’s growth (and it is debatable whether or not that is desirable). If it is done properly, with low-rise buildings and serious concern for aesthetics, it can be a real plus. Otherwise, we just become another Bellevue, heaven help us.

The central area plan won’t make any difference unless the current zoning is changed to match — then, it will be an improvement.

Hank Thomas, Issaquah

Maintaining controlled growth, promoting the urban village model, while preserving the old-town feel we love, and expanding foot traffic and transit options.

Gail Givan

More traffic congestion and fewer retailers that depend on foot traffic.

Jim Harris

Hopefully, it will give Issaquah a well-thought out and inviting roadmap for its historic core that will allow it to develop successfully.
