- In a 4-3 vote, the Sammamish city council voted to water down the interim development regulation adopted two months ago and to exempt 65 lots that were in the pipeline
- Deputy Mayor Karen Moran joined Council Members Ramiro Valderrama, Pam Stuart and Jason Ritchie to vote in favor.
- City council also voted 6-1 to accept an “MOU” (Memorandum of Understanding) with STCA, the Town Center developer. The effect of accepting the MOU is that STCA can apply for permits for at least 500 units before the work on V/C concurrency is done, likely allowing development of the Town Center under the old method of concurrency.
- Council Member Tom Hornish voted against the motion.
More analysis to come.
