January 10, 2011
NEW — 6 a.m. Jan. 10, 2011
Plans call for a road to be built in the Issaquah Highlands behind Grand Ridge Elementary School soon.
The proposed road is meant to alleviate traffic congestion on Northeast Park Drive and offer access to a series of parcels eyed for development.
The city has planned a meeting for parents of Grand Ridge Elementary students and other community members Wednesday. Participants can examine the proposed road design, offer input about changes and ask questions.
The project is also designed to reduce traffic congestion and improve safety at the school during peak drop-off and pick-up times for parents and students.
The meeting is set for 10 a.m. Wednesday at Blakely Hall, 2550 N.E. Park Drive. City Major Development Review Team Program Manager Keith Niven is scheduled to lead the presentation.
Councilman Mark Mullet — the only highlands resident on the City Council, as well as the parent of a Grand Ridge Elementary student — is also due to attend.
