East Lake Sammamish Trail Inglewood Hill Parking Lot Shoreline Substantial Development Permit (SSDP2016-00414)
The City of Sammamish received an application on October 19, 2016 requesting a Shoreline Substantial Development Permit (SSDP) to reconstruct and establish the Inglewood Hill Road Parking Lot into a 30-stall paved parking lot accessory to the East Lake Sammamish Trail, provide a public restroom facility, an information kiosk, an access ramp to serve the East Lake Sammamish Trail, and to develop 525 feet of the multi-use East Lake Sammamish Trail (to replace the existing interim trail) in the City of Sammamish. This interim trail will be widened to 12 feet of paved surface with 2-foot gravel shoulders and a 1-foot clear zone on both sides. The subject properties are located in the R-4 zone and in close proximity to Lake Sammamish which is a Shoreline of Statewide Significance. This proposal is located within the Lake Sammamish Shoreline Residential Environment Designation. An SSDP is now a Type 4 process which includes a Staff Recommendation and Final decision by the City’s Hearing Examiner.
