Master Plan Process

Components of a Master Plan:

A twelve to eighteen-month effort is anticipated for the master plan process with participation from the community at large, City staff, Parks & Recreation Commission, City Council, and community stakeholders. The master plan process consists of three phases as described below:

Phase 1 - Site Investigation and Analysis

Evaluate existing site conditions, identify sensitive areas, complete site studies, and develop an overall understanding of the site. During this initial phase, a survey will be developed and used to assist with the development of initial park concepts for public discussion.

Phase 2 - Park Program

Following survey development, the first public meeting will be held to present site analysis, initial survey results, and provide the Sammamish community an opportunity to share their hopes, dreams and concerns for the park.

Based upon the results of site analysis, City staff input, technical input and initial public input, a preliminary park design program will be developed that details proposed uses, design character and criteria.

Phase 3 - Master Plan Development

The remaining public engagement will take place during the third phase of the master plan process. Two to three Master Plan alternatives will be prepared, based upon the approved design program. This will include a narrative that summarizes the existing conditions, design alternatives, cost implications and regulatory criteria, and identifies issues which will require further study at the next stage of project development.

Based upon feedback from the community, Parks & Recreation Commission, and City Council, the alternatives will be revised in to one preferred Master Plan alternative with a preliminary cost estimate. The final deliverable will be a Master Plan Report, with final project drawings and narrative, project process, project phasing scenarios and phase costs.
