2017 Slow Down Traffic Meeting Attendees Issaquah Highlands

Conversations have continued since the January community meeting that kicked off our Drive with Care, Walk Aware campaign. The  Issaquah Highlands Community Association (IHCA) and Highlands Council, along with a few engaged residents, have met monthly with representatives from the City of Issaquah, including the Police Department, Public Works Engineering, and Communications. We have updated you on progress made via blog posts and on social media.

While overall awareness is improving, drivers are still speeding through our streets, rolling through stop signs, and violating parking laws.

Traffic Safety MeetingOn May 16th the City will provide a comprehensive recap of what has been done since January and what projects are in process or under study. They will ask for further community input on areas of concern. The meeting will take place at 7pm at Blakely Hall.

Topics discussed will include:

  • Parking safety behind Grand Ridge Elementary on College Drive
  • Zipper lane merge reconfiguration and use
  • Parking rules and enforcement
  • Traffic calming programs implemented in Old Town Issaquah

Bring your concerns and ideas to the meeting or share them with the City in advance on their Issaquah Highlands Traffic Calming webpage.
