Subarea planning is underway

Subarea planning is underway for the Snoqualmie Valley/Northeast King County Community Service Area. King County Local Services plans to release a public review draft of the plan in June 2023 and send a final draft to the King County Council in December 2023.

Right now, King County Local Services is asking community members to share their thoughts about two documents related to the plan: the Concept Document and Map Amendment Summaries (see links below). The Concept Document describes the vision statement, guiding principles, and scope of work for the subarea plan. The Map Amendment Summaries describe land use and zoning changes being considered for the subarea.

Visit our interactive website to learn more and share your thoughts about these documents.

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 using this input to help inform our Community Needs List for near-term project and programs, as well as the more long-term subarea plan development. The site also has a link to an interactive online map for collecting input to help inform the plan.

Specific policies for this subarea are already included in the King County Comprehensive Plan, and also in the Fall City Subarea Plan. The Comprehensive Plan also includes 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 pages 11-5 – 11-6 of the King County Comprehensive Plan).
