Interested residents can analyze the Issaquah Highlands’ walkability while exploring concepts from Jane Jacobs’ urban planning criteria.

Jacobs was an American-Canadian journalist, author and activist best known for her influence on urban studies.

Starting from the Issaquah Highlands Park & Ride, tourgoers will use sidewalks, paved and unpaved trails, and stairs to view residential areas, LEED-certified green buildings, mixed-use developments, storm water ponds and the new commercial center.

The May 4 exploration is part of the Jane’s Walk movement, an effort to get people to explore their cities and connect with neighbors.

The walk begins at 10 a.m. and is expected to go three miles, which should take about an hour and a half. The walk is a loop beginning and ending under the bus shelter on the west side of the Issaquah Highlands Park & Ride. Participants will be invited to grab some coffee and/or ice cream during the walk.

Neighborhood Walking Ambassadors Chantal Stevens and Nina Milligan will lead the walk.
