Snoqualmie residents can be part of urban forest discussion

Snoqualmie residents are invited to attend the Parks Board meeting on Monday, April 21 at 7 p.m. to discuss the draft version of the Snoqualmie Urban Forest Strategic Plan. The meeting will be held at Snoqualmie City Hall conference room at 38624 SE River Street.

Snoqualmie has an extensive tree resource of more than 8,000 street trees, numerous trees in parks, trees on private property, and many retained native forest remnants.

With grant assistance from the Washington State Department of Natural Resources, the city has hired Terra Firma Consulting to develop an Urban Forest Strategic Plan. This is a vision document that defines big-picture priorities and goals, as well as laying a path toward achieving those goals.

This meeting is an opportunity for residents to hear about the plan and the priorities that have been identified so far.  There will also be an opportunity for people to provide their input.

The Urban Forest Strategic Plan is posted on the city website at www.cityofsnoqualmie.org. See the “Public Participation” box on the home page for more information.
