Affordable Housing

The City of Snoqualmie is committed to finding ways to diversify and increase affordable housing options within the City. In addition to the affordable housing communities constructed as part the Snoqualmie Ridge Master Planned Community, elected representatives and city staff are currently working to better understand housing needs in the upper Snoqualmie Valley with the goal of creating a tangible plan to address the issue of affordable housing in Snoqualmie. 

Housing Action Plan

The City is in the process of developing a Housing Action Plan which will offer steps to support and diversify local housing options, as well as increase affordability and stability for residents.

Snoqualmie Valley Housing Needs Assessment

The City of Snoqualmie has an interlocal cooperation agreement with the cities of Carnation, Duvall and North Bend to identify current housing needs across the valley utilizing a Regional Housing Needs Assessment, which will provide a broader regional analysis on local population, employment trends, housing stock, and local housing policy. 

Affordable Housing Sales Tax

In 2021 the City began collecting a small portion of a King County sales tax earmarked for affordable housing and support programs. The Housing Needs Assessment and Housing Action Plan will be used to help determine where this funding will be invested.
