A moratorium on development is coming to Northern Sammamish, unless King County commits to fund short- and long-term improvement to the sewage infrastructure.
A moratorium on sewer connections will impact not only future development but also permitted development that has not yet been connected to sewer.
In December, we reported that the Sammamish Water and Sewer district is out of capacity to handle sewer for development on an irregular line roughly north of SE 8th St., including the Town Center development site.
With the May 17, 2019 candidate filing deadline now past, the 2019 Sammamish City Council election will have six candidates running for three seats. A seventh candidate, Ryika Hooshanghi, withdrew her candidacy.
Two more candidates filed yesterday for Sammamish City Council candidacy: Ken Gamblin filed for seat 6 opposing Rituja Indapure. Kent Treen filed seat 4, opposing Ryika Hooshangi and Karen Howe. As it stands today, seat 4 will have a primary in August. Both Treen and Gamblin are first time candidates.
The deadline for filing for the election with the Washington State Public Disclosure Commission is Friday.
