Klahanie could lose Initiative right in Sammamish annexation

The Klahanie Potential Annexation Area could lose its right to Initiative and Referendum if it annexes to Sammamish.

As part of unincorporated King County, the 10,000-plus residents in the PAA currently have the right. Sammamish residents do not.

The Klahanie PAA will vote April 28 whether to annex to Sammamish. If approved, the City Council hopes to make the annexation effective in August.

Sammamish residents vote April 28 in an Advisory vote (which means the City Council can affirm or reject the advice) whether the City should adopt the right of Initiative/Referendum. But the vote has no force of law.

So Klahanie PAA residents could very well come into Sammamish without this right.
