Lake Sammamish State Park might drop the state from its name.
Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission Director Don Hoch asked in a March 4 letter that Issaquah officials consider authorizing filing an annexation petition toward the state park.
The City Council’s Land and Shore Committee will take up the discussion in its March 11 meeting as a part of its docket of proposed Comprehensive Plan amendments.
Should the full council decided to file an annexation petition, state law requires at least one public hearing before the council could choose to draft and pass an ordinance to have the city assume ownership of the 512-acre park.
The committee will hold the public meeting at 6 p.m. in Council Chambers, 135 E. Sunset Way.
