The City of Snoqualmie has announced a public hearing slated for September 25th at 7 p.m. regarding the potential designation of the residential component of the Snoqualmie Mill property as a target area for multifamily housing tax exemption.
The meeting is set to take place at 38624 SE River Street, with a simultaneous virtual attendance option available via Zoom.
The focus of this hearing is the Snoqualmie Mill property, known as 38800 SE Mill Pond Road and currently owned by Snoqualmie Mill Ventures, LLC. The expansive 261-acre land parcel would be transformed into a multifaceted development project if approved.
The Snoqualmie Mill is proposed to incorporate multifamily residences on the upper floors of its mixed-use structures, featuring a combination of commercial, industrial, and mixed-use designations. Historically significant, the site was previously occupied by the Snoqualmie Lumber Mill, which ceased operations in 2003.
Local residents and stakeholders are being encouraged to actively participate in the hearing. “Those who are interested are encouraged to provide oral or written testimony to the City Council at the hearing,” the public notice stated.
For those who prefer to submit written comments or who wish to request copies of the draft resolution, correspondence can be directed to the City of Snoqualmie’s Community Development Department by email at CommunityDevelopment@Snoqualmiewa.gov or by calling 425-888-5337.
Important materials, including the meeting’s agenda, packet materials, and the Zoom link for the hearing, are expected to be accessible on the City’s official website by September 22, 2023.
This public hearing is part of the City’s effort to ensure transparency and involve the community in decisions shaping the area’s future.
