The Washington State Department of Health has issued a statewide order requiring individuals to wear a face covering in indoor public spaces such as stores, offices and restaurants. The order also requires face coverings outdoors when you can’t stay 6 feet apart from others. Masks may be removed when you are seated at a table but must be worn when waiting for a table, leaving or going to the restroom.
Please also contact the business of interest to confirm their open hours of operation.
The streatery is allowing each business to expand their outdoor seating in designated areas. As long as the business has a liquor license and complies with all applicable state and local laws, alcohol is allowed to be served within the streatery.
The pilot is taking careful consideration to ensure all people, including those with mobility disabilities, will be able to access the businesses within the streatery. A temporary multi-use path will be outlined down the middle of the closed roadways and there will be designated ADA access to each business.
Since a streatery is new to Issaquah, we wanted to conduct a pilot with downtown businesses, who are physically constrained on outdoor seating options. If you are a restaurant or café located outside of downtown Issaquah that would like to consider other options to expand outdoor seating, please contact the Development Services Permitting Group to inquire about sidewalk café’s, parklets or use of your own private parking lot.
All people who want to walk or ride a bicycle are encouraged to do so to access any business within the streatery. Front Street and a portion of Alder Place will be closed to vehicle traffic but a 20 foot path will be provided down the middle of the roadways to allow people to access any business in downtown. Additional bike parking will also be available to provide more options to access the variety of downtown businesses.
If you choose to drive your vehicle to Downtown Issaquah, please note parking will be limited. Please see the downtown parking map to view available options.
