Background and Resources

BACKGROUND

The Town Center plan was adopted in 2008, with implementing regulations adopted in late 2010 and early 2011. During the Town Center planning process, there was extensive public outreach and participation, including more than 30 public meetings, open houses, surveys, design charrettes, and other public input opportunities.

The Town Center public process resulted in a plan that ensures anticipated growth will occur in a way that contributes to the natural character and quality of life in Sammamish. The Town Center will absorb a significant portion of the city’s anticipated residential and commercial growth and integrate compatible land uses while minimizing impacts to established neighborhoods.

The Sammamish Town Center is roughly bounded on the north by East Main Street, on south by SE 8th Street, on the east by 233rd Avenue and on the west by 222nd Street. The area also includes the 30-acre Sammamish Commons which is home to City Hall, Sammamish Community and Aquatic Center, Library and park.
