Potential Hotel on Snoqualmie Ridge Begins Public Hearing Process
Public Hearing: February 6, 7 p.m., Snoqualmie City Hall

Need a place for your in-laws to stay when visiting Snoqualmie? Well, they might be able to settle into a hotel room in the Snoqualmie Ridge Business Park. A developer has expressed interest in building a hotel at the southeast corner of Snoqualmie Parkway and SE Center Street. The hotel could benefit Snoqualmie in many ways, but the developer is not able to submit an application until the Planning Commission and the City Council consider amendments to the Snoqualmie Ridge design standards and plans. Those potential amendments require public hearings, the first being February 6 at the City’s Planning Commission meeting, which takes place at Snoqualmie City Hall, 38624 SE River Street. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. and the public hearing will include a presentation of proposed amendments including design renderings. Read More.
