Sammamish Comprehensive Plan
Every 10 years, cities in Washington with 50,000 or more people are required to update their comprehensive plan. "The Comprehensive Plan is a 20-year vision and roadmap for Sammamish’s future. The plan guides City decisions on where to build new jobs and houses, how to improve our transportation system, and where to make capital investments such as utilities, parks, sidewalks, schools, and libraries. The Comprehensive Plan is the framework for most of Sammamish’s big picture decisions on how to grow while preserving environmental assets and improving our neighborhoods."
Eastlake's 100 acres of land is currently Zoned R-4 (Residential 4 units per acre) and what Eastlake is proposing does not comply with residential use and would require a new zoning classification and mapping. If Sammamish City residents support this project it is imperative that they make their voice heard to City officials during the first 6 months of the Comprehensive plan update (through June of 2023). Over the next 6 months City staff and officials will determine the scope of the update and decide on what updates or changes the City will consider during the next 2 years as they update the plan.
Project Planning Phases
Includes the planning and construction of all the core structures which includes the Tech Campus, Hotel, Outpost Buildings, Bridges and Trails, Outdoor Amphitheater, Auditorium, and the Gondola Station's.
Phase 2 represents the Gondola segment crossing Lake Sammamish and connecting Sammamish directly to light rail at Redmond Technology Station. Phase 2 can run concurrently with Phase 1 but will run longer due to the multiple jurisdictions involved.
Phase 3 includes setting aside a plot of land for future development for the evolving needs of the project and also considering the wants and needs of the community.
