At yet another meeting, the Sammamish City Council was consumed by the traffic concurrency-driven building moratorium.
In a surprise move, Deputy Mayor Karen Moran moved to lift the moratorium for the Town Center and for short plats. (Short plats are small developments of only a few homes, those projects typically sought by the “moms and pops.)
The meeting ended without taking a vote.
This action would be unfair to other developers and provide preferential treatment to STCA, the developer of the Town Center.
In a wild and chaotic meeting Tuesday, dealing with the city manager’s position, concurrency and development the Town Center, it became clear the business of Sammamish is done behind closed doors and that developers’ influence is running strong.
