The City of Sammamish is required to periodically update its comprehensive plan by the State of Washington, in compliance with state growth management goals and codes. A comprehensive plan is a document containing goals and policies for different aspects of city development, including housing, transportation, and utilities, that set the framework for zoning, the development of its infrastructure, plus provides the basis for any changes to the City's Municipal Code, which in turn inform the day-to-day decisions that incrementally shape our world.
The most recent, and only, City of Sammamish Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 2003 (extensively amended in 2006). There have been regulatory and policy changes at the state, region, and county level since then with which our comprehensive plan must be consistent. Staff also hope to produce a plan with improved clarity, readability and usefulness.
Current status (Updated May 2013)
City staff are outlining the scope of the project and hiring a consultant to assist with the update process.
Stayed tuned and keep an eye out for opportunities to participate.

Plan please contact
