District Visions
Central Issaquah

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

  • MeetingEarly 2017: City staff met with property and business owners in each district and collected feedback. 
  • March 2017: The Central Issaquah Plan Task Force reunited to discuss district visions
  • May 2017: City hosted two community meetings to collect the public's feedback. 

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 April 2018.
