What do you think about Sammamish's proposed plan and strategies for acquiring new lands?
The city of Sammamish is developing a land acquisition strategy to proactively acquire more land to serve public needs. We’re beginning this process by asking for your input.
In addition to developing new parks and trails, we are also focused on preserving natural resources, wildlife corridors and the community’s tree canopy. In part, this strategy has been prompted by growing concerns in the community about rapid residential growth. We aim to adopt this “Land Acquisition Strategy & Implementation Policy” by the summer of 2017.
There will be several other opportunities to provide input, including a statistically valid survey later in Feburary, but we appreciate your participation in this first step.
The 2017-2022 Parks Capital Improvement Plan, adopted by City Council in July 2016, allocated a total of $13 million for land acquisition over six years, with $7 million of that amount available in the year 2017.
