William Buchan development company filed its appeal Wednesday of the denial of its plat application to build 30 new homes west of the main Chestnut Estates subdivision across salmon-sensitive Ebright Creek.
A Sammamish Hearing Examiner denied the plat over open space issues. He also found that road standards were inappropriately varied and criticized the Sammamish staff over a number of issues.
The Buchan appeal claimed the Examiner erred procedurally, on the law, exceeded his authority and just plain came to the wrong conclusions and decisions.

The appeal is to the King County Superior Court. A trial date has been set for next January.
