North Bend is permanently closing a small, 60-year-old bridge on the west side of the city. The city plans to post a number of signs and shut the Alm Way Bridge, over Gardiner Creek, next week. About a half dozen homes are on the west side of Alm Way, which runs roughly parallel to North Bend Way on the west end of city limits.
Community Events, December 2013
On December 9, Snoqualmie firefighters responded to the downtown area of Snoqualmie twice for broken water pipes. The water was shut off at the meter and crews assisted in removing water from the residences.
If you have plans to travel over Snoqualmie Pass Sunday morning, you may want to leave early. Starting at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 15, crews will close I-90 in both directions near the summit to remove three large trees along the highway.
The Snoqualmie Valley School Board is seeking public opinion on a bond issue, in a series of public meetings this week, and an online meeting next week. Community members will be asked for their feedback on a potential bond that proposes $216 million in facilities work, including construction of a sixth elementary school, a major renovation of Mount Si High School and high-priority facilities improvements at other buildings throughout the district. The estimated tax impact of the bond on tax payers would be an additional $2.24 per $1,000 of assessed property value.
The city of Snoqualmie has taken the lead in the Green Power Challenge, a competition between five cities designed to encourage residents to participate in PSE’s Green Power Program. At stake in the competition is a total of $40,000 to be granted by PSE toward a community solar photovoltaic project. In Snoqualmie, that project would be the installation of solar panels at the Snoqualmie Community Center and YMCA.
