Protecting neighborhoods and televising more meetings

Sammamish has a major controversy over whether to remove barriers to increase traffic connectivity. Among the concerns neighborhoods have in removing barriers are speeding cars.

Here’s one solution.

  • Sammamish has decided to start televising planning commission and city council workshop meetings. This is long overdue and was urged by the Planning Commission a few years ago in a formal proposal, but kudos to the city for at long last proceeding down this road (the barricades were finally removed, apparently). This will improve communication between the city government and its citizens.
