Sammamish City Council OK’s housing funds
March 12, 2013
Sammamish will be getting a bit of help wading through affordable housing issues thanks to the regional group A Regional Coalition for Affordable Housing.
The city approved its annual contract with the group after a presentation from Arthur Sullivan, a program manager with the group.
Sammamish will pay the coalition $49,167, an amount already accounted for in the budget.
In exchange, the group will assist with updates to the city’s comprehensive plan, help evaluate possible opportunities for possible housing infrastructure and assist the city staff in wading through changes in state law as it applies to housing issues.
