Michael Gertley, part owner of Issaquah Gallery, sent a letter to members of the Issaquah Arts League announcing the emergence of an idea they hope will catch on. According to Gertley, art classes at the gallery have- been full since they started offering them. He says, "The community is ready for a school devoted to the fine arts." Gertley wants to offer classes to adults and children in painting, drawing, print- making, photography, sculp- ture, fiber arts and callig- raphy. He said the school will be located in downtown Issa- quah, but a site has not yet been selected. Details of tui- tion and admission will be worked out in the near future, he says. "We want to know whether there is any public support for this." He says all comments on the idea are welcome. JOIN THE TAX REBELLION!

The survey, printed last month in the Press, had 60 respondents. John Owen of Makers said that that many replies showed a very strong interest among residents in the future of Issaquah's historic downtown. "We had many more responses than the typical community," said Owen. While Monday is the busiest business day, Satur- day is second, shows the survey. An earlier survey among downtown merchants agrees with that finding. The busiest time of day is late morning and early after- noon. "Saturday should be the busiest," safd Owen. "This shows that people are doing the comparative shopping for rakes and underwear some- where else," he said. "The mid-day hours indicate that most shoppers in Issaquah are either elderly or don't work." Most of those answering the questionnaire said they do business in downtown four times a week. The earlier merchants survey said customers come to shop only once or twice per week. "This tells us that residents are coming to downtown to use the post office, library and government offices. It says that downtown is much more than a shopping dis- trict,"saidOwen. , Another part of the survey confirmed this. Ninety-eight percent said they use down- town to shop for goods and to visit the Post Office and banks. Forty percent also go to the park on fish hatchery and 40 percent patronize a restaurant or tavern. "Positive comments about downtown were very encour- aging," said Owen. Conve- nient location was the number one asset named in the survey, while the natural setting and the small town character were mentioned as the most important char- acteristics. The friendliness of merchants and safety dur- ing the evening were rated 'good.' "There are no bums or panhandlers in Issaquah," said Owen. "The merchants need to concentrate more on late shopping hours to take advantage of that safety feature. We also found many people are attending the Village Theatre. Merchants should be staying open at least one of those nights to draw from the crowds." Both the merchants and citizens survey also point to some aspects that have room for improvement. Traffic Opening Soon/ In Downtown Issoquoh ISSAQUAH WATERBEDS ETC. circulation and a lack of variety among shops were the most named problems. Many comments included the desire to see another major retailer, like Fred Meyer or Penneys. "Just as many said that chain stores are what they don't want," pointed out Owen. "And most of those who do want a major store only want one." Convenient parking and outdoor seating both rated "poor" in the survey. Makers are including specific solutions to these two prob- lems in the downtown revital- ization plan they are develop- ing for the Chamber and the city. Citizens named landscap- ing, building and signing improvements, and pedes- trian improvements as the most important projects for increasing downtown's visual image. Preliminary plans in the revitalization program call for extensive landscaping from Gilman Boulevard south to lssaquah Creek to create an entrance to the city, and flower baskets to be used for brightening the main business district on Front Street. Pedestrian improve- ments may be made to park- ing areas. Members of the Chamber's revitalization committee will meet again this week to further discuss survey results and improve- ment projects.
