City Council Approves Preservation Plan for the Bergsma Parcel
There was much jubilation in council chambers last Monday evening as the Issaquah City Council approved a plan to preserve 46 acres on Cougar Mountain during its Dec. 3, 2018 meeting.
The land, commonly known as the Bergsma property, is located on the northeast corner of Cougar Mountain between Newport Way Northwest and Talus. A 57 home development has been proposed for the property, so this preservation plan has come none too early.
Kudos to the “Save Cougar Mountain” organization, which has led the charge on this effort. www.savecougarmountain.org
This landmark decision illustrates the power of the grass-roots three step program:
