Sustainable Building Action Strategy
In 2017, the City Council adopted a Sustainable Building Action Strategy. This strategy aims to position Issaquah as a leader in sustainable building through specific, actionable measures focusing on building and infrastructure design, construction, renovation, operation, education and outreach.
Sustainable Design Technical Assistance
The City is offering developers with multifamily or commercial projects in Issaquah an opportunity for free sustainable design technical assistance. The onetime consultation with a sustainable building consultant is provided for free.
This is an opportunity to review your development plans with a consultant knowledgeable about all major certification programs, sustainable design, construction and operations, and a wide variety of project types and issues. The consultation is designed to support your project team and help identify options, outline certification considerations, isolate potential strategies, and plan to maximize utility and other incentives.

Priority Review Permitting
Applicants pursuing green building certification (LEED Gold or Built Green 5 Star) are eligible for priority building permit review at no additional fee.
This prioritized review decreases the time for first review by about 50 percent. Additionally, a single point of contact — a Green Concierge — is designated to support faster processing and a more streamlined approach. Check out the Priority Review Permitting Application Agreement.
