You’ve been telling us you’d like more coverage of Sammamish and Issaquah – and we’ve heard you. We're happy to announce that we've harnessed our resources to more effectively cover both communities - introducing Sammamish-Issaquah Patch!
For your ease of navigation and because we have some exceptional(ly long) names in our cities, we'll keep the same web address at Sammamish.Patch.com, but our name is changing to reflect the expansion.
It makes more sense to our readers and our local small business owners to offer coverage that extends into Issaquah, doesn't it? So much of the information we were offering was of interest to residents of both communities (some might say we're "joined at the hip"); having it all in one place will make it easier for you to keep up with all the goings-on that affect our extended community.
Here are some of the exciting benefits this will bring to both communities:
- All of the businesses will be part of our extensive community directory, called Patch Places. Business owners will continue to be invited to - and readers will have a comprehensive resource for finding every business in Sammamish and Issaquah.
- We already are covering Sammamish and Issaquah breaking news, and school districts. This will allow us to expand that coverage and invite Issaquah residents to add their own voices to the discussion through Letters to the Editor, , Events and in our Neighborhood Gallery.
- We’ll bring you regular coverage of the issues and events close to home. We’ve already started doing that, with coverage of Sammamish and Issaquah. Now Issaquah residents will have more of this kind of coverage.
We're excited about being able to provide better coverage of the things that matter to residents of both of these communities - which is always something we’re striving to do! But as always, if you think we're missing anything, let us know.
