The Snoqualmie City Council will take public comment at a public hearing on July 10th at 7PM regarding a potential amendment to the current noise ordinance that would give a seasonal exemption to noise limitations for musical and other events sponsored by downtown and Snoqualmie Ridge businesses.
The council is also scheduled to vote on the ordinance amendment later that night during the July 10th city council meeting.
If passed, events such as live outdoor music could continue until 11PM on Friday and Saturday nights instead of the current allowable time of 10PM. The new allowable time would not be yearlong, runing from the Friday before Memorial Day through the Friday of Labor Day Weekend.
Some downtown residents are opposed to the amendment, saying 10PM is late enough for loud music that travels through the downtown area from outdoor concerts.

Verbal comments can be made at the hearing. Written comments may be submitted no later than July 10, 2017 at 5PM to Mark Hofman, Director of Community Development, City of Snoqualmie, PO Box 987, Snoqualmie, WA 98065 or email@example.com.
