To provide for the civic, commercial, and recreational needs of its rapidly growing population and to create a diverse, mixed-use community, the City of Sammamish initiated an ambitious effort to create a Town Center on 200 acres of undeveloped and lightly developed land that includes several wetland areas.
MAKERS led a team of consultants in the preparation of a plan that set the direction and identifies implementation steps needed to create the Town Center. This plan coordinated with several projects already in development, including a new city hall, police station, recreation center, and 20-acre park. After the plan was adopted (June, 2008), MAKERS helped the City craft a new zoning code and design standards to implement the plan (adopted October, 2010).
