Project Background:

In 2001, the City received a gift of 1,470 feet of Lake Sammamish waterfront property valued at $4.8 million. In March 2009 the City of Redmond transferred five neighboring parcels to the City of Sammamish. A few privately owned parcels interrupt the land in public ownership. The City purchased two of these private parcels in March 2011. The project site is therefore not contiguous but extends approximately 2,750 feet along the shoreline.

The City’s Model Master Plan Process was conducted from July 2008 to May 2010 to arrive at a revised preferred master plan for Sammamish Landing. Community input was obtained through a web-based community survey and three public meetings. Check-in meetings were also held with the Parks Commission and the City Council at each stage of the process.  A SEPA review of the master plan was completed and a determination of non-significance was issued in June 2010. The master plan for Sammamish Landing was adopted by Council at a Regular Meeting held on July 20, 2010.

A detailed list of meetings is included below. Public comment is entertained at all Commission and Council meetings.
