Issaquah City Council Approves Designation and Zoning for Schools at Providence Heights

The Issaquah City Council voted 5-2 at its January 21, 2020 regular meeting to approve land designation and zoning at Providence Heights as Community Facilities CF-F. We are thankful to the City Council and look forward to working with our municipal partners, the residents of Providence Point, and other neighboring communities to mitigate the impact as much as possible as we build these much needed schools.

The next step in that process will be for the District to submit a formal pre-application packet to the City of Issaquah, followed by a full application, community conferences, staff reviews, staff reports, and a recommendation by City staff to the City Council for a decision. According to the City, the length of time for reviewing and rendering a decision on the Master Site Plan will vary an estimated 4-8 months and depends upon staffing resources and the number of resubmittals ISD is required to submit. We will keep you informed as we work through the process over the coming months.
