Snoqualmie Valley Housing Task Force
On Friday, November 4, 2022, twenty community stakeholders met at the Snoqualmie City Council Chambers, representing the cities of Carnation, North Bend, and Snoqualmie and unincorporated King County.
The participants were encouraged to share their top three (or more) concerns or ideas. They were then instructed to place those under the
five major themes: inclusive housing, health & wellness, underserved communities, missing middle housing, and community & public policy. Finally, committees were formed and each named a chair.Committees are determining the frequency of their meetings and scope of work. Please check the committee pages below for their members, contact information, and upcoming meeting date, time, and place. Committees are expected to meet at least quarterly.
An evening Community Town Hall will be held mid-year. This will give the committees a chance to share their work-in-progress and receive community feedback.

In a culmination of this year-long process, the Task Force will release a report to the councils of the cities and county for further consideration on or before December 2023.
