Thanks for posting this, Schroder.  This kind of outcome doesn't happen often and the story is a great template for how to get it done.  Congrats to the citizen activists, and the responsive city council.  up.gif  up.gif

Develop beyond existing road capacity and table traffic issues for some undetermined time in the future is standard east KC development strategy. FREEDOM!

And parking capacity. The Central Issaquah Plan requires only 0.9 parking spots per residential unit. I was at the meeting where this was questioned. The wizard on the city council told me "you don't understand modern development" and said that people living in the new developments wouldn't need cars; "they'll just walk everywhere".

I was born in Swellvue but grew up in Issaquah.  Clark, Issy Jr. high, Issy High School (INDIANS thank you very much) I dont disagree with much of anything said here. Most of the comments are accurate enough and have their Merritt.  There is no stopping or fixing what's going on there or in Western (read King, Snohomish and Pierce) Washington. I did the only practical thing, I escaped to Eastern Washington.  Short of occasionally missing a few restaurants I dont regret moving one bit! up.gif

You don't appear to have missed many restaurants.  clown.gif
