Central Issaquah Plan team earns honor from chamber
January 29, 2013
Issaquah Chamber of Commerce leaders honored residents, planners and City Council members Jan. 24 for crafting and adopting a long-term redevelopment plan.
The council adopted the Central Issaquah Plan in December to transform the business district from strip mall suburbia into a dense urban core punctuated by buildings up to 125 feet tall.
The chamber praised the people involved in the Central Issaquah Plan effort at the annual Innovation in Issaquah Luncheon.
Before the council decision, chamber leaders enthusiastically backed the plan as a way to encourage investment in Issaquah.
The council is likely to reconsider Central Issaquah Plan design and development standards — rules for buildings, community spaces, landscaping, signage and more — in April.
