The Snoqualmie City Council will hold a public hearing for the Snoqualmie Mill Development Agreement at its regular September 12, 2022, meeting. That hybrid meeting is scheduled to begin at 7pm. Participants can attend the hearing in-person in City Council Chambers or online using Zoom video conferencing technology.
During the hearing, the public will have the opportunity to provide comments on the proposed Development Agreement between the City and Snoqualmie Mill Ventures, LLC.
The proposed Development Agreement would establish development standards and processes that would govern and vest development of the property for the term of the agreement, including mitigation measures and development conditions that are applicable to the project.
For members of the public who cannot attend the public hearing in person or online, written comments may also be submitted to Senior Planner Jason Rogers via mail, PO Box 987, Snoqualmie, WA 98065, or via email, email@example.com.
The Development Agreement is scheduled for adoption consideration at the September 26, 2022, City Council Meeting.

About the Mill Site Project: The private project is proposed for the 261-acre former Weyerhaeuser Mill Site near downtown Snoqualmie, and is owned by Snoqualmie Mill Ventures, LLC. The proposed project site does not include the nearby Mill Pond/Borst Lake, which is still owned by Weyerhaeuser.
Most of the property - approximately two-thirds of the project site - is planned to remain open space with natural areas, habitat, and flood storage. The re-developed portion of the property is planned to occur in three stages.
Planning area 1 would focus on the production and storage of wine, re-developing this area with a mix of light industrial, commercial/retail, and warehouse buildings along a pedestrian-oriented main street featuring tasting rooms and restaurants. It would also include 160 units of multi-family housing situated on the upper floors of the mixed-use buildings.
Planning areas 2 and 3 are proposed to be phased over the next 10-15 years.
