About Sammamish

Sammamish is an Eastside suburb of Seattle in King County, Washington, United States. It was incorporated in 1999. The population was 34,104 at the 2000 census.

History

The Sammamish Plateau was part of unincorporated King County for most of its history. A vote in 1991 to join neighboring Issaquah failed, as did a vote on incorporation the following year. A renewed movement to become a city, born of frustration with development policies set by the county government, met with voter approval in 1998. Sammamish was officially incorporated on August 31, 1999.

Geography

Neighboring cities include Redmond to the north and Issaquah to the south.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 18.3 square miles (47.4 km²), of which, 18.0 square miles (46.7 km²) of it is land and 0.2 square miles (0.6 km²) of it (1.37%) is water.

Situated on the shores and hilly terrain east of Lake Sammamish, the city features a landscape of trees, mountains, and lakes. Other than Lake Sammamish, Beaver Lake and Pine Lake are the two biggest lakes in Sammamish.

Sammamish has a mild Marine West Coast or oceanic climate.

Recreation

Lake Sammamish and Issaquah's Lake Sammamish State Park offer water recreation. There are many hiking trails and scenic woods around the housing developments. There are five major city parks: Beaver Lake Park, Pine Lake Park, NE Sammamish Park, East Sammamish Park, and Ebright Creek Park. Parks being planned in the recently-incorporated city include Soaring Eagle Park and the Sammamish Commons. The East Lake Sammamish Trail, opened in April 2006, connects to a regional trail system. A skatepark is located adjacent to the Sammamish City hall, across from Skyline High School.

The first phase of Sammamish Commons, a city center project comprising City Hall, recreation facilities, and a police station was opened in late 2006. Eventually, the King County Library System plans to relocate the current Sammamish Library to the site; in addition, the city government and YMCA have recently been in talks to construct a community center on the site.

Sammamish is home to two private golf clubs: the Plateau Club, and Sahalee Country Club, which hosted the 1998 PGA Championship and the 2002 World Golf Championship-NEC Invitational.

Arts

The Sammamish Symphony Orchestra, led by Music Director and Conductor, R. Joseph Scott, is a nonprofit organization based on the Sammamish Plateau. Incorporated in 1994, the orchestra began as the Providence Point Players and has grown from a handful of musicians to a full symphony orchestra. Made up primarily of Eastside residents, the ensemble provides the opportunity for talented, dedicated musicians to perform in an adult orchestra. The Sammamish Symphony is committed to developing and maintaining an enthusiastic and supportive audience by becoming an integral part of the local Eastside community and providing quality music at an affordable price for everyone. In particular, the orchestra promotes involvement in the arts for the young people of our community, including outreach programs and other learning opportunities for youth.

The city relies on Eastside Fire and Rescue to provide fire services.

Schools

The city is part of two school districts: Lake Washington School District (LWSD for short) serves northern Sammamish and Issaquah School District (ISD for short) serves southern Sammamish. There are two high schools, Eastlake High School of the LWSD and Skyline High School of ISD exist within the city limits. There are four middle/junior high schools: Inglewood Junior High, Beaver Lake Middle School, Pine Lake Middle School, and Renaissance School of Art and Reasoning, as well as nearly a dozen elementary schools such as Discovery, Sunny Hills, Cascade Ridge, Challenger, Margaret Mead, Samantha Smith, Rachel Carson, Christa McAuliffe, and Elizabeth Blackwell. Also, the Pacific Cascade Freshman Campus opened at the start of the 2006-2007 school year in ISD, making it the second Freshman Campus in the state of Washington.. Now the freshman campus is
closing and is being turned into a Middle School. There is also one more Elementary school located in the Issaquah Highlands and is part of the Issaquah school district and is called Grand Ridge Elementary school

Eastside Catholic High School moved to its newly-constructed Sammamish campus in September 2008, with the addition of grade 6-8.
