hase annexation cut in half ['he lssaquah City Council :)roved Jan. 19 the annexa- n of about half the punt of property original- tnown as the Chase annex- an and will seek King unty Boundary Review ard approval of the move. size of the original was reduced by Lf and its boundaries nar- to meet the review ard's requirements with a of 75 percent of assessed valuation within boundaries approved an- ation by petition. Planning Director, to rges that the revised were arbitrary capricious, said he acted on "What I considered nor- mal procedures for dealing with annexation." Hartman said he was hopeful the coun- ty would approve the annexa- tion. The city council adopted a zoning package on the prop- erty last year that will become effective upon an- nexation. Both the zoning process and the actual annex- ation were controversial sub- jects that resulted in com- promise agreements that were still subject to debate this week. The council's zoning package modified a planning commission recommendation and was not wholly endorsed by all the property owners in the area. On the northwest side of Newport Way, where Neal Chase has development interests and the Nazarene Church will build a new church, RS 9600 zoning was endorsed. RS 35000 is the zone on the opposite side of Newport Way. Council members agreed the RS 35000 zoning may be changed once the revised comprehensive plan indicates the possible future zoning of the 1-90 corridor that abuts a portion of the Chase annexa- tion. If the county approves the 87-acre annexation, the city will eventually urge annexa- tion of the remaining por- tion, Hartman indicated. uncil appointments made following appoint- Peterson (council presid ) sider city employee contracts, nts of lssaquah City will serve on the City Opera- negotiations and employee )uncil members to standing were made Jan.

Voting to approve the an- nexation, Council member Joe Peterson said, "This whole package has been a compromise. 1 don't have apologies for the zoning. The compromise was to maintain the single family nature of the area. 1 don't want condos and apartments out there but I'm totally unimpressed with the county's ability to control growth. They don't even use the word 'control.' They say 'accommodate.' " But Mony Moncrief, who voted with Tim O'Brian against the measure, has been opposed to the annexation and zoning from the start. He said the area did not need to be annexed prior to the adoption of the compre- hensive plan and suggested that property owners with building plans in the area manipulated the council toward the accepted zoning and annexation.
