The Subarea Plan is a 20-year plan that outlines a vision for the community and policies to help achieve that vision.  This plan is for the Snoqualmie Valley and Northeast King County. The topics covered can span many subjects, including: land use/zoning, housing, transportation, open space/parks, rural character, economic development, and climate change/hazard mitigation and resilience.

About the subarea plan

The Department of Local Services is working with Snoqualmie Valley and Northeast King County communities to develop a Subarea Plan that establishes a long range vision, and policies to implement the vision.  Throughout 2021 and early 2022 we conducted introductory meetings with representatives of communities and organizations throughout the service area to help get the word out. We then went to the community with vision, guiding principles concepts in Fall of 2022 and early Winter of 2023.  The rest of 2023 we will be working hard to complete a draft plan to be shared with you for feedback mid 2023. Below are some opportunities to participate and feedback provided.
