Central Issaquah Plan environmental impact is meeting topic
June 28, 2011
The city is seeking input from residents about how to gauge potential impacts on the environment during a decadeslong redevelopment effort.
Interested people can offer input at a public open house and scoping meeting at 6 p.m. July 13 in the Council Chambers at City Hall South, 135 E. Sunset Way.
City planners set up the meeting to collect information about the environmental impact statement process for the Central Issaquah Plan, a blueprint to guide redevelopment in the 915-acre commercial core.
The city intends to analyze transportation, land use, aesthetics, fish and wildlife habitat, public services and utilities in a future environmental impact statement.
Officials received Central Issaquah Plan recommendations from a mayor-appointed task force last year, but no timeline has been established for redevelopment.
The public is also invited to comment on the scope of a potential environmental impact statement.
The city is accepting written comments on the environmental impact proposal until 5 p.m. July 22. Send comments to Environmental Planner Peter Rosen, Issaquah Planning Department, P.O. Box 1307, Issaquah, WA 98027, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
