Snoqualmie Valley/Northeast King County
Subarea planning is underway
Subarea planning is underway for the Snoqualmie Valley/Northeast King County Community Service Area. We are coordinating internally with other King County agencies, reviewing existing planning documents for this area, creating a work plan, and starting to plan a public kickoff meeting for this fall.
King County Local Services will deliver a draft plan to the King County Council in December 2022 for adoption by June 2023. The plan’s development will be consistent with changes to King County’s Community Service Area subarea planning program that were adopted by the King County Council in July 2020.
Thanks for your input so far!
The council directed the county to develop the plan together with the community, so we are using an interactive website to engage and collaborate with residents and businesses in the area. We’ve received more than 500 comments over the past year, many covering several ideas and topics. We’re now organizing this input, and will update this website as things progress.
Specific policies for this subarea are already included in the King County Comprehensive Plan, and also in the Fall City Subarea Plan. The Council’s amendments to the subarea planning program in July 2020 included some specific direction on the scope of work for the Snoqualmie Valley/Northeast King County Community Service Area Subarea Plan, including the Snoqualmie Pass town and ski area and Snoqualmie Interchange (see pgs. 64-65 of King County Comprehensive Plan Policy CP-100).
