Public Hearing Graphic 2

The community is invited to provide comments about the draft Development Agreement (DA) for the proposed Snoqualmie Mill Site Project at the September 12, 2022, regular hybrid City Council meeting starting at 7pm.  

A draft Snoqualmie Mill DA was made publicly available on September 6, 2022, and was presented to the Councilmembers during a special City Council meeting on September 8.  The Council requested revision of a portion of the draft DA’s affordable housing section, but otherwise determined that Council deliberations on the draft DA would await input received during the September 12 public hearing.  

As allowed by the Council’s Rules of Procedure, at the September 8 Special City Council meeting the City Council adjusted the time limits for speakers at the September 12 public hearing, to reflect the level of public interest in and complexity of the proposed Mill Site Development Agreement.  

The adjusted time limits and procedures for the Snoqualmie Mill Site Development Agreement Public Hearing are as follows:

  • Staff Introductory Presentation
  • Applicant Presentation: 20 minutes
  • Opposition Group (Snoqualmie Community Action Network) Presentation: 20 minutes
  • Individual members of the Public Comments: 3 minutes per person
  • Staff Comments
  • Applicant Rebuttal Time: Equal to 1.5 minutes times the number of opposition public comment speakers

Please be advised, during the above noted general public comment period, speakers may only speak once. Additionally, those wishing to speak during the Public Hearing must sign up upon entry of City Council Chambers. A signup sheet will be provided.  

For online attendees, staff will poll meeting participants wishing to provide public comments at the beginning of the meeting and add names to the in-person signup sheet. All those signed up to speak will be called on by name and allowed a maximum of three minutes for verbal comments. 

For members of the public who cannot attend the public hearing in person or online, written comments may be submitted to Senior Planner Jason Rogers via mail, PO Box 987, Snoqualmie, WA 98065, or via email,

About the Development Agreement: If approved, the Development Agreement will establish the development standards and processes that will govern and vest development of the property for the term of the DA, including mitigation measures and development conditions applicable to the project.

About the Mill Site Project: The private project is proposed for the 261-acre former Weyerhaeuser Snoqualmie 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.
