Mill Site Property
In 2012, the City of Snoqualmie annexed one of the largest remaining undeveloped sites in King County – the Mill Site Planned Commercial/Industrial Property. It is part of a larger property operated as a lumber mill for nearly 100 years. Of the 593 acres, approximately 350 acres have been zoned open space and 200 acres zoned planned/commercial industry land.
A proposed commercial/industrial plan and development agreement will guide planning and future development of the site.
The Mill Site Planned Commercial/Industrial Property is immediately east of downtown Snoqualmie, across the Snoqualmie River from the historic downtown. It is the previous location of the Weyerhaeuser Mill. It is located north of Borst Lake and northeast of SE Mill Pond Road.
Portions of the property could be used to connect the gap currently existing in the Snoqualmie Valley Trail as well as providing land for a river walk trail corridor adjacent to the Snoqualmie River.
At the Snoqualmie City Council meeting on August 13, 2012, the city council adopted Ordinance 1098 annexing 593 acres in the Mill Planning Area of Snoqualmie's Urban Growth Area. The annexation required no transfer of monetary funds from one entity to the other.
The annexation became effective September 28, 2012.
On May 23, 2017, there was a combined informational meeting and open house at Snoqualmie City Hall, which included a presentation, illustrations, and a public comment period.
An environmental impact statement (EIS) in underway.
