New businesses could be allowed on Ridge

If you've ever considered selling musical instruments, opening a drug store, or running a boutique hotel, the Snoqualmie Ridge business park may soon be open for business.

No such luck, though, for a prospective motorcycle dealer or drive-through burger entrepreneur.

Proposed changes to business park standards would allow more than a dozen new types of businesses to set up shop in larger spaces than before. Some uses remain out of the picture, though, in line with the city's established Ridge retail marketplace on Center Boulevard.

Recently approved by the Snoqualmie Planning Commission, the new standards for uses in the Ridge business park, specifically on lots 1, 11, 12 and 20, are now under review by a committee of the Snoqualmie City Council.

Proposed new uses include a boutique hotel with up to 80 rooms, a bike shop, cigar store, craft supply, liquor sales, speciality paint store, jewelry store, music store, sporting goods store, health club, veterinary clinic and home improvement or hardware store.
