The Highlands Council
Our mission: to foster the development of a vibrant and caring community committed to service, diversity, and well-being.

Welcome

Your Community At Work April 2015The Highlands Council is a non-profit organization in Issaquah Highlands with the mission to “foster the development of a vibrant and caring community committed to service, diversity, and well-being.” Though we work closely with your community association (HOA), we are not a part of the IHCA. The Highlands Council manages Blakely Hall, official communications, and social programming in Issaquah Highlands. We also organize many volunteers, clubs, and committees.

Highlands Council owns Highlands Fiber Network. 

The Highlands Council affairs are governed by the Board of Trustees, each member with one equal vote. Two Council Trustees must be homeowners in Issaquah Highlands, two Trustees must represent multi-family housing under covenant in Issaquah Highlands, and two Trustees must be a stakeholders of Issaquah Highlands retail/commercial entities. The Trustees are appointed and the positions are self-perpetuating.
