Snoqualmie Valley Transportation, Senior Center, North Bend and Snoqualmie win the Vision 2050 Award

Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC) Executive Director Josh Brown presented a Vision 2050 Award to Snoqualmie Valley Transportation (SVT), Mt. Si Senior Center, and the cities of North Bend and Snoqualmie at the July 18, 2023, North Bend City Council meeting.

Vision 2050 Awards celebrate progress in enhancing the region’s communities and natural environment while advancing equity and opportunity.

SVT, Mt. Si Senior Center, and the cities of North Bend and Snoqualmie were awarded in the “Working Together” category. They were honored for promoting a livable region by helping to implement Vision 2050, the regional growth management, economic and transportation strategy.

“Snoqualmie Valley Transportation provides excellent transit service with door-to-door and fixed route options through ingenuity and meaningful partnerships,” said Josh Brown, Executive Director of PSRC. “The service is available in a rural area and is especially helpful to seniors, young people and those needing mobility assistance.”

North Bend Mayor Rob McFarland agrees, saying, “Transit service for rural communities is always very difficult due to low ridership and high cost; however, SVT’s transit service is a model of efficiency and high level of service.”

“Working together is an integral part of nurturing a healthy Snoqualmie Valley. Snoqualmie Valley Transportation, Mt. Si Senior Center, and the City of Snoqualmie are partners in working to ensure our community at large has access to essential services because that is a big part of what makes North Bend highly livable.

VISION 2050 is the region’s plan for growth. By 2050, the region’s population will reach 5.8 million people. The region’s cities, counties, Tribes, ports, agencies, businesses, and communities have worked together to develop VISION 2050 to prepare for this growth and serve as a guide for sustaining a healthy environment, thriving communities and a strong economy.
