The 80 acre site is currently zoned for mineral resources, though will need to be re-zoned for any future development. If allowed to develop the land, the city of Issaquah may receive funds which, in turn, could be used for infrastructure projects, transportation or other city needs. Long-term plans by the city have the land becoming homes and businesses in the future. In order to move forward, the development project will need the approval of the Issaquah city council. It is anticipated that the city and the company will seek the publics input, along with other professional guidance from real estate agents and others familiar with growth patterns in the city, before submitting the development plan to a vote.
