BREAKING NEWS: City Issues STCA Phase I a Concurrency Certificate for 419 Homes in City Center

By Miki Mullor

The City of Sammamish announced today that two STCA projects for the
Town Center development have passed their concurrency tests and that Certificates of Concurrency have been issued for 419 homes and 82,000 sq/ft of commercial space.

  1. All based on an “uncommitted, unfunded improvement project”? I was going to ask how much the smoke and mirrors cost us, but of course Sammamish must be getting a pretty sizable volume discount on them.

  2. Something is off. I think this “test” requires an audit. Is this due to the Don Gerend lawsuit? I have a feeling his lawsuit was indirectly funded by Microsoft, through the developers who got part of that $500 million “Destroy the Northwest with maximum building” award from Microsoft.
