The Issaquah Police Department recently implemented a Traffic Enforcement Pilot Program focused on driving behaviors that affect traffic flow and local mobility on the valley floor south of Interstate 90, as well as the major commuting corridors of Front Street, Gilman Boulevard, State Route 900 and Newport Way. During the enforcement from April-June 2018, police:  

  • Conducted 558 traffic stops or contacts
  • Issued 370 citations/infractions
  • Filed 564 violations charges

About 20 percent of the stops were for distracted driving, and 17 percent were for blocking intersections. More than 50 percent of the stops were for other offenses, including speeding, illegal passing, expired vehicle registrations, etc.

Thank you for taking our initial survey last spring. We now would appreciate your feedback on the effectiveness of this program! Please take our short survey by Aug. 25.

Issaquah's parks are your parks — help shape your future!

Earlier this year, the City of Issaquah started developing a Parks Strategic Plan.

During our first phase of public input, community members provided valuable feedback – thank you!

Common themes were identified that helped us create a framework for future projects within Issaquah’s parks system.

As a next step, we’re seeking input via two separate surveys:

  • A budget exercise – spend $100 in Parks Bucks!
  • A priorities exercise – provide feedback on specific trail corridors, existing parks, athletic fields, open space and new parks/amenities.

Community members are encouraged to complete both surveys. The deadline is Nov. 17, 2017.

This input will help identify the projects we want to focus on during the next six years.
