The Sammamish staff will recommend to the City Council tonight that action on the Ace Hardware development plan be deferred to January.
In the Council packet in advance of tonight’s meeting, Staff writes,
“Continue to work with the applicant team and report back to the City Council in January, 2013 with options to consider the request.”
With respect to the Docket Request by landowners for the SE Quadrant, the Staff recommends to the Council:
“Address the items included in the proponent’s submittal in the upcoming Economic Development Strategic Plan process which will develop specific steps to catalyze implementation of the Town Center Plan. These steps may include programmatic efforts, infrastructure plans, and amendments to the Town Center Plan and associated development regulations.”
I’m unclear if this is adequate or whether the Planning Commission needs to be involved. We’ll have to wait and see what Staff says at the Council meeting tonight.
The city staff and government have 2 speeds… slower and and slowest. Anyone hoping to get anything changed within a couple of years better think again.
