Parcel Number(s)



City of Sammamish received an application for a reasonable use exception (RUE) on January 4, 2018. The Applicant requests a RUE to development a single family residence on a lot entirely encumbered by critical areas and their associated buffers. The plan would require 6,178 square feet of impact (including the 1,872 SF house footprint plus 4,306 square feet of yard, driveway, sidewalk and associated setbacks) to the standard buffer of a tributary to Laughing Jacob’s Creek, and an associated wetland. The parcel is encumbered to such a degree that administrative remedies, such as buffer averaging, would not be possible.
