City of Sammamish

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>City Hall opened in a new building in 2006 and blends glass and wood into its design, providing 44,000 square feet of working and meeting space. The three-level building sits on thirty acres of what's called Sammamish Commons, a city property that includes a plaza, park, picnic areas and trails.</p>
<p>The building's first floor houses chambers for the seven-member council. Council members, who are elected at large, typically hold regular meetings the first and third Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm. Study sessions are scheduled for the other Tuesdays of the month, also at 6:30 pm. The top administrator is the city manager.</p> <p>Sammamish 21/61 TV broadcasts council meetings on cable providers Comcast (Channel 21) and Broadstripe (Channel 61, formerly Millenium).</p> <p>City Hall also is home for arts, parks and planning commission meetings, a Technology Committee and the Sammamish Youth Board. The Sammamish police officers have first-floor offices in City Hall. Sammamish contracts with the King County Sheriff's Office for police services.</p> <p>While the top floor has offices, the bottom level has public parking. From mid May to late September, the plaza is the site of a Farmers Market each Wednesday. It starts in the late afternoon and ends in the evening. From Sammamish Commons, visitors can see the sunset.</p> <p>The municipality takes its name from two Northwest Native American words, samena and mish, according to the King County Library System. Samena means "hunter"; mish means people.</p>
