The city of Sammamish will host King County officials for a public meeting on the East Lake Sammamish Trail from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on April 25 at City Hall.

The King County officials will provide information and answer questions as part of their public outreach on the East Lake Sammamish Trail paving project. All stakeholders and interested residents are invited to attend. City staff and a number of Sammamish City Council members are also expected to attend.

A particularly challenging portion of the trail — segment 2B — is currently in the design phase, with construction anticipated to begin in 2018. The stretch of the trail runs for 3.6 miles between Southeast 33rd Street and Inglewood Hill Road.

Many Sammamish residents along the existing gravel trail have expressed great concern about the wider footprint King County is planning for the paved project.
