Transportation Master Plan

Connect Sammamish - Our TMP


Improving How You Get Around Town

The City is developing its first Transportation Master Plan (TMP) which will include both short- and long-range strategies leading to the development of a multimodal transportation system to help achieve the City’s transportation vision and goals over the next 20 years.

The TMP will provide a strategic framework and prioritized investments to help improve how we get around town. In doing so, there are several issues and needs to consider when deciding how and where to spend limited resources. These include:

  • Addressing the challenges of growth on the transportation network;
  • Promoting safety for all users;
  • Developing a long-term, sustainable financing plan;
  • Finding a way to achieve a connected road network while maintaining neighborhood character;
  • Integrating new technologies; and
  • Finding ways to partner with transit agencies, school districts, regional partners, and others to meet the community’s most pressing transportation-related needs.

How do we get there?

With your help, of course! We want to continue to hear from the community to better understand transportation needs and priorities. Throughout the development of the TMP, we will use fun and engaging activities and tools on this site to hear directly from you!

  • TMP Input Tracker - UPDATED!

    Throughout our outreach efforts for the Transportation Master Plan (TMP), we’ve been recording all the input received from our in-person and online exercises. We first shared that data with you in late September. As community input continued via Connect Sammamish and other methods, the TMP Project Team has been updating the TMP Input Tracker, which you can now view here. This version of the TMP Input Tracker contains all input through November. Sharing this data is part of our desire to be transparent and to keep the conversation going in the community!

This version of the TMP Input Tracker contains all input through November. Sharing this data is part of our desire to be transparent and to keep the conversation going in the community!

    Take a look and see how your favorite projects resonated with your neighbors.

    A Few Reminders

    The TMP Project Team has categorized all projects by project type (auto, pedestrian, connection, transit, bike), date, method and date of submission, and write-in projects. The projects we have included as City-Identified projects are a subset of a larger project list.

    These tallies will be used to help inform our Prioritized Project List that will be included in the Transportation Master Plan.

    More notes about how to review the spreadsheet are contained within the spreadsheet itself and also detailed in the previous NewsFeed post here.

    We have categorized all projects by project type (auto, pedestrian, connection, transit, bike), date, method and date of submission, and write-in projects. The projects we have included as City-Identified projects are a subset of a larger project list.

    How is the Community Input Used?

    These tallies will be used to help inform our Prioritized Project List that will be included in the Transportation Master Plan. The net vote that these projects receive will be given a score in a more comprehensive scoring system to help determine the Prioritized Project List.

    Some important things to note when reviewing this document:

    · The projects shown in the TMP workshop exercise are a subset of a much larger list.

    · In both the online and in-person exercise, attendees were free to write-in any project they felt was missing. The write-ins were categorized by the project station they were contributed at.

    · Write-In Projects were recorded as precisely as possible.

    · For the in-person workshops, attendees were given ten dots to show support for a project and one dot to show opposition to a project.

    · Attendees were free to vote more than once for the same project.

    · The “Workshop Project ID” category in the spreadsheet corresponds to the project numbers in the brochure passed out at the workshop and the “City Project ID” category is the number system the City uses to identify projects. Both systems are for identification purposes only.

    · Asterisks in the “Workshop Project ID” category mean that the project requires coordination with other municipalities to complete.

    · The total net vote was calculated by subtracting the total “No Tallies” from the total “Yes Tallies”. Every vote was worth a value of one; there was no weighting implemented.

    · The Connect Sammamish tallies were recorded on 9/6/19 and then updated on 9/19/19. The contributions after 9/19/19 will be updated once the online component closes on 11/7/19.

    We hope you enjoy exploring the data and seeing how your input contributed to the ranking of the projects so far. Also available for review are the comment cards we received- look for the tab at the bottom of the Excel document. Thank you again so much to those who came to our workshops or participated online, your thoughts count and matter to the development of the TMP. Please visit the online mapping tool if you still want to participate! We will be counting all online contributions after the tool closes on 11/7/19 to update the document.

  • We Partied With You at Party on the Plateau (P.O.P)!

    We were at the Party on the Plateau with you on Saturday and had some really great conversations about the ways that everyone gets around town! We learned about specific areas in the City, including intersections near schools and neighborhoods off of Issaquah-Fall City Road. Even more, we heard from lots of Sammamish kids about how THEY get around town. The kids had the chance to draw their favorite way to get around town with crayons, and they did not disappoint! These budding artists love to bike, ride scooters, walk, drive with their parents, and they even want to use...

These budding artists love to bike, ride scooters, walk, drive with their parents, and they even want to use hoverboards in the future.

    Keep the conversation going by coming out to our second of three identical workshops at Blackwell Elementary School on Thursday August 22!

  • Successful Pop-up Office at Sammamish Farmers Market

    We had another great time meeting with you and your neighbors at the Sammamish Farmers Market on August 7th. We heard about your preferences when it comes to walking and bicycling through Sammamish, one of our series of key questions being asked during our outreach effort. Resident responses were split between having greater coverage in sidewalks and bike lanes (i.e. sidewalks and bike lanes covering more of Sammamish) or having higher quality walking and bicycling facilities (e.g. enhanced and protected sidewalks and bike lanes). Keep the conversation going with us by coming to the first workshop next Thursday, August 15th,...

  • Thank you for meeting us at National Night Out!

    We met so many great Sammamish residents last night at National Night Out! We heard a range of thoughts and preferences about the TMP and the Sammamish road network. Specifically, we heard about congestion around schools, transit, enforcement, the need for more efficient operations, and much more. These types of conversations help us better understand how we can improve how you get around town. Keep in touch with us and come out to the Farmers Market to talk to us tonight!
