Redevelopment ideas to be unveiled at open house
November 23, 2010
The city and longtime Issaquah developer Rowley Properties partnered in April to brainstorm redevelopment of about 90 acres in the commercial core.
Now, the city and Rowley plan to roll out the recommendations from a community group appointed to guide the redevelopment effort. Residents can offer feedback at a Dec. 15 open house for the project. The open house is scheduled from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn, 1800 N.W. Gilman Blvd.
Participants can review materials from the Community Advisory Group, the citizen panel appointed to shape the process. Organizers also plan to present information about possible environmental impact studies for redevelopment on the site.
Beyond the open house, residents can also provide input as the project progresses through policy work and environmental studies.
Before the December open house, residents can catch a sneak peek of the redevelopment proposal at the next Committee-of-the-Whole Council meeting. Members meet at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 30 in the Council Chambers at City Hall South, 135 E. Sunset Way.
