The Sammamish City Council formed an economic development committee that will look at ways to advocate for business in the community and potentially jumpstart the Town Center project.
The council approved forming the committee at their May 16 meeting by a unanimous vote. The committee will look at infrastructure financing, the possibility of public-private partnerships and other ways to support commercial development in Town Center and around the city.
“With Town Center somewhere on the horizon, this will be a show of good faith to the citizens, especially those in the Town Center footprint,” said Councilman John James, who had been advocating for the committee for more than a year.
The membership of the committee and the specific topics it will discuss will be determined in the coming months.
