Snoqualmie may hire firm for riverwalk master plan

At next week’s Snoqualmie City Council meeting, the council will consider a proposal to hire a Canadian design firm for a new riverwalk master plan. The city would pay Brent Harley and Associates about $60,000 to create a detailed plan for shoreline access, restoration and enhancement along the Snoqualmie River.

Over the last several years, the city has acquired a number of riverfront properties, some through flood buyouts and grants.

The pre-annexation agreement for the Snoqualmie mill site property includes a requirement that Weyerhaeuser provide the city property for a riverfront trail alignment on the north side of river, to allow for planning and future construction of a riverwalk trail loop.

The Snoqualmie City Council meets at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 13.
