Conservancy plans Central Issaquah discussion series
September 27, 2011
Citizens interested in the long-term plan to reshape Issaquah’s business district can learn more at a series of discussions hosted by the Cascade Land Conservancy, a nonprofit organization focused on conservation and land-use issues.
The series is dedicated to discussions about livability, growth and the Central Issaquah Plan. The city is in the midst of a push to define redevelopment in the 915-acre Central Issaquah in the coming decades.
The conservancy advocates for locating density adjacent to existing urban services and preserving developable open space.
The initial meeting is at 7 p.m. Sept. 29 at REI, 735 N.W. Gilman Blvd. The discussion is scheduled to include tactical urbanism strategies — short-term, small-scale actions to create long-term change. Email Andrea Gousen firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP or learn more.
The next discussion is at 7 p.m. Oct. 26 at REI, and transportation is the discussion topic. The group is also scheduled to meet at 7 p.m. Nov. 16 at the Hailstone Feed Store, 232 Front St. N., for a land-use discussion.
Each meeting includes experts about the topic as discussion leaders.
