Connect Sammamish - Our TMP

*Update as of June 2020: The City's Transportation Master Plan effort is currently on hold, pending resolution of the City's compliance effort with the Growth Management Hearings Board's Order remanding the City's segments and corridors level of service (LOS) standards for compliance with the Growth Management Act (GMA) and the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA). Please check in on the status of this project by visiting this page in the future.

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.

Draft TMP Now Available!

The TMP Project Team has developed a draft TMP, which is the culmination of extensive community outreach, significant technical data collection and analyses, and City Council input beginning in spring 2017. The Draft TMP documents the community’s goals and priorities for the City’s transportation network. It addresses Sammamish's transportation challenges now and into the future by identifying issues and optimizing multimodal transportation investments in the City. City Council and community input on the Draft TMP will be reviewed and incorporated into a revised TMP, which will be the subject of a future online open house on this webpage in the tools below.

    The TMP Community Outreach Summary Report is now available for your review! This report summarizes all of the input we've received from you and your neighbors about the Sammamish transportation network and future transportation projects.

    Read about the many ways that the TMP Project Team interacted with the Sammamish community to inform the TMP. Now the focus shifts to developing the first draft of the Plan, an exciting next step in the process toward adopting the TMP.

    Thank you for all your time and energy invested in the TMP! Your involvement will make the TMP a strong document that best represents our community priorities for transportation.

    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!

    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.

    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. Now, we’d like to share that data with the public in an effort to keep the conversation going in the community! Take a look and see how your favorite projects resonated with your neighbors.

    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.
