The City is presently revising its Comprehensive Plan, and community feedback is crucial for the Snoqualmie 2044 project.
Residents are invited to share their insights on housing, transportation, parks, and other essential areas. This open house will offer insights into how the Snoqualmie Comprehensive Plan aspires to shape the City’s trajectory over the subsequent eight years in accordance with the community’s vision.
Join the discussion at the Comprehensive Plan Open House scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2023, from 6-7:30 p.m., located in the Snoqualmie Library Meeting Room at 7824 Center Blvd SE. Attendees can enjoy pizza and other refreshments. Children are also welcome.
Often referred to as the Comp Plan, the Comprehensive Plan delineates goals and strategies for fostering growth while safeguarding the well-being, health, and quality of life of its inhabitants.
This forward-looking 20-year blueprint guides development, laws, and municipal expenditures. It encapsulates the legacy that community members aspire to bestow upon upcoming generations and synchronizes various City departments toward a unified vision.
Though amendments to the Comp Plan are permissible annually through the docket process – granting citizens a platform to propose alterations – the Growth Management Act (RCW 36.70A) mandates that counties and cities execute a compulsory update at minimum intervals of a decade. The City has initiated this obligatory update for the current year.
The primary objectives of this update are to:
- Reassess the plan and its regulations, ensuring they are aligned with modifications to state law and the Growth Management Act (GMA).
- Adapt to land use and population shifts.
- Prioritize and address community requirements and aspirations.
