Affordable Housing in Snoqualmie


The History behind Planning for Affordable Housing in Snoqualmie 

Creating affordable rental housing opportunities in Snoqualmie ensures that our city is an open and accessible community for families and individuals earning lower than median incomes to secure convenient and livable housing. There is a significant gap in affordable housing available vs. what many current Snoqualmie residents and employees of local businesses can comfortably afford. 

Parcel S20, adjacent to the Eagle Point neighborhood, has been designated for multifamily housing since 2004 and was designated specifically for affordable housing in 2009.

Panorama Apartments LLC, a subsidiary of DevCo, has applied for administrative approval of a minor modification to the 2004 Snoqualmie Ridge II Mixed Use Final Plan conditions and a Conditional Use Permit to facilitate construction of an affordable housing development on parcel S20 on Snoqualmie Ridge. Parcel S20 is located downhill from the Eagle Point neighborhood, and uphill from the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital.  

As part of the conditions of the Snoqualmie Ridge II Mixed Use Final Plan, Parcel S20 has been specifically designated for affordable housing. Parcel S20 is encumbered by a 25-year covenant, which is recorded against title to the property and specifically limits Parcel S20’s uses to affordable multi-family rental apartment housing. The proposed apartments would complete the affordable housing program requirements for Snoqualmie Ridge II.  

Details about the Minor Modification

The minor modification application seeks to confirm net developable acreage and, due to the site’s slope, to increase retaining wall heights above six feet; the Conditional Use Permit application seeks Hearing Examiner approval of four-story building heights.  The minor modification and conditional use permit process are specifically provided for in the SR II Development Agreement and Mixed Use Final Plan conditions.  As provided in the Mixed Use Final Plan Conditions, the decision on the minor modification request will be made by the Community Development Department Director with the concurrence of the chair of the Community Development Committee of the City Council.
