Bergsma Windward Development Agreement Denied by Issaquah City Council

Posted June 23, 2017

One of the last developable parcels in the City of Issaquah section of Cougar Mtn is being considered for development. The key issue is access. The City has required a road going up the hill from Newport Way, that utilizes several critical area variances and a tremendous quantity of dirt movement. All of this on steep terrain with a variety of wetland and stream issues.

The decision by the Council denies an attempt to cluster 70 housing units on the property, leaving the developer with around 40 units that could be built using a more traditional plat. Will this happen? We don’t know.

The best possible use is protected open space to preserve the forest and the water quality going to Lake Sammamish.
