Final Snoqualmie Ridge Housing Subdivision’s Notice of Application Published

In the mid-1990s, the City of Snoqualmie annexed 1,300 acres of undeveloped land that eventually became the site of what we now know as Snoqualmie Ridge I, with the first houses being constructed in 1998.

Snoqualmie Ridge I included dwelling units, a business park, a neighborhood center retail area and The Club at Snoqualmie Ridge, a private, PGA Tour-sanctioned golf course.[1]

Snoqualmie Ridge II was annexed in 2004. On August 11, 2022, the City of Snoqualmie published a Notice of Application for a proposed housing subdivision that would create 46 new duplexes and townhomes, marking the final housing subdivision in the Snoqualmie Ridge master-planned community.

The proposed Timber Trails subdivision would be located on parcel S-14 of Snoqualmie Ridge Il. The nearly 5-acre parcel is located on the west side of Jacobia Ave SE, south of the Swenson Drive SE and Snoqualmie Parkway intersection. 

This land parcel was designated by the Snoqualmie Ridge II Mixed Use Final Plan for a density of 4-16 dwellings per acre. It was previously owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS) and was recently purchased by Tri Pointe Homes. 

Anyone wishing to provide public testimony on this Notice of Application can submit written comments to Dinah Reed, Senior Planner at City of Snoqualmie, PO Box 987, Snoqualmie, Washington 98065 or Public testimony will be accepted until September 9, 2022

A future public hearing about this project proposal will also be held. That date is still to be determined.

  • Snoqualmie Ridge was kind of my “career case” as City Attorney from 1982 to 2013! I remember the day that Weyerhauser folks came to my office, I think it was in 1986, to meet with then-mayor Darwin Sukut. They laid out a land use plan on my conference table that showed 5,000 dwelling unit on property on both sides of i-90. It is strange to be reading about “the ifinalsubdivision” in 2022 nine years after I retired!

  • I don’t think this makes sense to anyone who understands the current TRES traffic situation. This is not master plan. this is crazy and thought less

  • Snoqualmie Ridge is one of the highest income communities in the US ($159,000 per household) with outstanding schools and SR was always planned for more people. Most of the people who are moving into Eagle Point (especially the townhomes) work at Amazon, Microsoft, Google, Facebook, etc (many from India on work visas) have young kids (33% of snoqualmie is < 18) so perhaps we should have an educational assessment on tech companies who hire from overseas or an impact fee on the new townhomes to expand the local elementary school (assume ~ 40 more kids) vs adding more portables. They will also need a plan to mitigate traffic (40 homes x ave of 9 trips per home / day) as many will be going up SE Jacobia cutting through the Eagle Pointe Neighborhood to bypass the school traffic.

    I just heard that when they built Timber Ridge school they are only allowed to build for the number of homes already built vs planned).

  • I cant imagine how this will affect traffic at the school.. its already a nightmare.. Snoqualmie City Council is just seeing property tax dollar signs with such a dense housing plan.. CRAZY… kinda like the eyesore of a new business center next to the hotel thats been empty for over 3 years… They they dont think about long term.. they only think about the here and the now… this is not a good idea.. at all..

    1. Like Pat Anderson mentions earlier, this Planned Unit Development has been in the pipeline since the early 90’s. Literally nothing has changed in regards to the housing count or estimated population increase since then. Impact fee’s for parks, roads and schools have been collected and revised upward with inflation since day one. So please stop whining about the planning dept, the greedy council etc. If the schools are a nightmare, how about holding the school district accountable? The district has been provided updated projections over the years by the city so why blame the city?

  • If it was planned since the 90’s, why was it owned by a church group? I thought Weyerhaeuser owned it?
