197-11-510, notice is hereby given that the City of Issaquah issued a Mitigated Determination of Nonsignificance (MDNS) on August 20, 2014 for a proposal to subdivide a 10.49 acre site into 3 development parcels and 2 critical area/open space tracts.

The site is currently split between two zoning designations: Single-Family Suburban (SF-S) on the west portion of the site and Mixed Use Residential (MUR) on the east part of the site. The short plat will establish the exact zoning boundary. The west development Parcel A (2.88 acres), to be accessed off NW Inneswood Pl, will be developed in the future as a single family plat.

Parcel B (1.40 acres) and Parcel C

(0.28 acres), accessed off Newport Way NW, will later be proposed for multi-family residential development. The project site address is 905 Newport Way NW. The site is located between NW Inneswood Pl on the west and Newport Way NW on the east.
