County transfers 1.07-acre parcel to Issaquah
February 15, 2011
King County leaders adopted a measure Feb. 7 to transfer a small parcel of land to Issaquah.
The wedge-shaped parcel consists of 1.07 acres along the 23600 block of Southeast Black Nugget Road between Southeast Issaquah-Fall City Road and Highlands Drive Northeast. The property includes a storm water pond.
The ordinance adopted by the council authorizes King County Executive Dow Constantine to execute the land-transfer agreement.
The storm water pond on the land provides important drainage for sections of Southeast Issaquah-Fall City Road and Southeast Black Nugget Road inside Issaquah city limits. Issaquah has agreed to take on the parcel and to maintain the storm water pond.
The county acquired the land more than a decade ago for a road-improvement project. Issaquah then absorbed the area as part of the North Issaquah annexation.
Through the annexation, the city also took ownership of the road right of way, but the county did not transfer the parcel to the city as part of the shift.
