Citizens can comment on proposed Issaquah Highlands land sale

April 10, 2012

By Staff

The city could sell a small parcel in the Issaquah Highlands, and residents can offer input on the proposal April 16.

The property under consideration is 14,693 square feet, or about the size of the Issaquah Library, in the Issaquah Highlands’ Forest Ridge subdivision. If sold, the land could be used for residences.

People interested in the proposed transaction can appear at the City Council’s public hearing and offer input for or against the item, or provide comments about the proposed agreement. The council meets in the Council Chambers at City Hall South, 135 E. Sunset Way, at 7:30 p.m.

The property is part of a complicated transfer of development rights completed in March 2011. In exchange for preserving a forested Tiger Mountain site near Issaquah High School, officials agreed to open additional highlands land to development.
