Is there room for more Ridge retail?

Exploring whether new retail uses in Snoqualmie Ridge Business Park would be a good idea, a group of Ridge merchants have hired a Bellevue consultant, Hebert Research, to look at the possibilities.

Currently, retail use is allowed only in the Ridge's existing merchant district on Center Boulevard.

However, the city of Snoqualmie is considering allowing lots 11 and 12 in the Snoqualmie Ridge Business Park to have retail as well as commercial and industrial use.

The current debate is over how new retail outlets in the business park, built under different standards, would impact existing businesses in the Ridge marketplace.
