District Visions
Central Issaquah

Overview
Central Issaquah is comprised of 10 districts, or neighborhoods (see map), each with a distinct character.

According to the City's vision, called the Central Issaquah Plan: "District visions are a glimpse of the area's future. The visions are implemented through the zoning, development and design standards, as well as the maps of park, trail and circulation improvements."

We're assessing whether projects that have been built, approved or are currently under review meet the visions established in the Central Issaquah Plan. Each district vision will be evaluated on several criteria:
  • Vision statement
  • Primary uses
  • Key environmental features
  • Green Necklace/parks
  • Mobility/connections
  • Boundary adjustments

Timeline
Starting in early 2017, City staff met with property and business owners in each district and collected feedback. In addition, the Central Issaquah Plan Task Force reunited to discuss district visions.

Moving forward, the Planning Policy Commission and Council Land & Shore Committee will discuss the ongoing evaluation of Central Issaquah's district visions. It is anticipated that the full City Council will make a decision in November.
