We're working to ensure parking in the Central Issaquah meets the City's vision and our community's needs.
In partnership with a consultant team composed of Fehr & Peers and EcoNorthwest, we will analyze two aspects of parking in Central Issaquah:

  1. Determine if the minimum required parking is set too low, resulting in off-site impacts. The work will require analysis of recently built projects — coupled with lessons learned from other communities — to determine if data supports the perception that off-site parking is occurring.  
  2. As structured parking may not be supported by current market conditions, determine if structured parking should be required to meet all or a portion of required parking minimums. Currently, structured parking is encouraged but not required.  

Our consultant team will produce a report, which will evaluate:

  1. Whether Central Issaquah is "right parked," or whether code revisions are warranted to increase or reduce parking standards
  2. The outcomes of mandating some, or all, of the required parking be in a structure

Depending on the results of the analysis, our consultant team, in collaboration with City Staff, may be asked to propose revisions to the Central Issaquah standards.  

In June 2017, our consultant team will present preliminary findings to the Council Land & Shore Committee. Any proposed code changes would be reviewed by the Planning Policy Commission later that month, with review and adoption by the full City Council anticipated in July 2017.
