The Shoreline Hearing Board consists of five members as follows:
1. At least two members shall be residents of the city of Snoqualmie.
2. One member shall be a city staff employee other than the city administrator.
3. One member shall be a resident of unincorporated King County within the city’s urban growth area.
4. One member shall be a member of the city’s flood task force, if such a body is in existence at the time of the appointment; otherwise, this member shall be, in order of preference, either a resident of the city or a resident of unincorporated King County within the city’s urban growth area.
Members are appointed by the Mayor to four-year terms.
The role of the Shoreline Hearing Board is to make recommendations to the City Council regarding shorelines issues and the Shoreline Master Program, and make decisions on certain shoreline permits such as Shoreline Conditional Use Permits or Shoreline Variances. The principal guides to making shoreline decisions in Snoqualmie are the Comprehensive Plan and Shoreline Master Program.
