Snoqualmie Tribe Donates 10 Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) to Snoqualmie Police

The Snoqualmie Tribe recently donated 10 AEDs to the Snoqualmie Police Department with the intent of equipping all patrol vehicles with these life-saving devices. While focusing county-wide with a donation to the King County Sheriff's Department, the Tribe also wanted to provide AEDs locally to the Snoqualmie Police Department. "The Snoqualmie Tribal Council has just possibly saved a life by their donation of 10 AEDs to our Police Department," said Snoqualmie Police Chief Perry Phipps. "These AEDs will immediately be placed in the 10 remaining vehicles that currently do not have one to be used if needed." Read more about the Snoqualmie Tribe AED donations to King County. 

Mayor Larson's Update on the I-90/SR18 Interchange

Mayor Matt Larson talks about the current status of funding and designs for the Interstate 90 / State Route 18 interchange at Snoqualmie Parkway. Following his presentation is a WSDOT video about a Diverging Diamond Interchange design. Watch the video! (May 2017) 

Hotel, Restaurant, Retail, and Office Development Planned for Business Park

At the March 13 City Council meeting, Council Members authorized Mayor Larson to execute a development agreement allowing a hotel, restaurant, retail, and office space to be built in the Snoqualmie Ridge Business Park at the corner of SE Center Street and Snoqualmie Parkway. 

Tourism is Snoqualmie’s primary industry. More than 2.2 million tourists visit Snoqualmie Falls each year. Having the option to stay overnight at a moderately-priced hotel would encourage many travelers to have longer stays and return visits to Snoqualmie. The hotel will be a moderately-priced Hampton by Hilton.

In addition to providing accommodations, the development will provide expanded retail options and services for Snoqualmie residents; will support other Snoqualmie restaurants, retail, and services used by hotel guests; and will provide diversified revenue for the City future infrastructure, public safety, city services, and staffing needs.
