Citizens can offer input on proposed redevelopment
November 22, 2011
City leaders could seal a deal to redevelop almost 80 acres in the business district next month.
In the meantime, citizens can offer input on the proposed development agreement between the city and Issaquah-based Rowley Properties at public meetings in late November and early December.
The hearing is the latest step in a decadeslong process to reshape 80 acres near Interstate 90 and state Route 900 — land dubbed Hyla Crossing and Rowley Center.
City Council members plan to review the proposal through mid-December and reach a decision by Dec. 19.
The proposed agreement requires Rowley Properties to provide or pay for transportation upgrades, affordable housing, creek restoration and storm water management.
The final environmental impact statement for the land is due by Nov. 28. The proposal is up for review before the Committee-of-the-Whole Council on Nov. 29 and before the Council Land & Shore Committee on Nov. 30. The draft agreement then heads to the Council Transportation Committee the next day.
The proposal is scheduled to return to the Council Land & Shore Committee on Dec. 13.
