Three project proposals for Lake Sammamish State Park, including one to totally remake the park with a hotel/convention center, came to the city’s Economic Development Department by the deadline Sept. 9.
In a joint effort with Washington State Parks, the city released a request for proposals in August, asking for project ideas to reinvigorate and make use of the park under the redevelopment and restoration plan adopted in 2007.
Economic Development Director Keith Niven said the three full project outlines are markedly different, but he found positive aspects across the board.
“I see all of these to be viable choices for the park,” he said. “I think they can all fit. I don’t think there is anything on the table that can’t be mitigated.”
