Middle school land annexed to Issaquah
December 24, 2013
Less than 6 acres that encompasses Issaquah Middle School was annexed into the city by the City Council during its Dec. 16 meeting.
In a short presentation by city Long Range Planning Manager Trish Heinonen, she said school officials wanted the annexation because the school is about to undergo a massive restoration and officials want to do so under city regulations.
Upgrades of the school facilities are planned for 2014 through 2015. The proposed improvements include remodeling and expanding the existing school to become the new Clark Elementary School and Tiger Mountain Community High School.
The council held a public hearing the same night as the vote. No one stood in support of or against the annexation.
