Positions open on city commissions and boards

The Snoqualmie Parks Board, Planning Commission, and Shoreline Hearings Board have openings for new board members and commissioners.

The Parks Board advises the City Council on the expansion and operation of city parks and recreational facilities. The board consists of seven members who are appointed by the mayor for three-year terms. The board meets once each month on the third Monday at 7 p.m. at Snoqualmie City Hall.

The Planning Commission is primarily involved in long range planning and land use issues, including development of the comprehensive plan and zoning regulations. The commission is currently working with city staff on a major update of the Snoqualmie Comprehensive Plan, which plans for growth, development, and conservation over a 20 year period. The commission consists of nine members appointed by the mayor for six-year terms. It meets on the first and third Monday of each month at 7 p.m. at City Hall.

The Shoreline Hearings Board typically reviews shoreline variances and conditional use permits in a public hearing setting. Currently the board is updating the City’s Shoreline Master Program which involves crafting local policies and regulations for land use, environmental protection, public access, and development within designated shorelines. Five members make up the board, each appointed by the mayor for four-year terms. Meetings are on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month at 5 p.m. at City Hall.
