Sustainable city sights

Snoqualmie Mayor Matt Larson shows the town’s new city hall to urban planning students from the University of Washington. The new city hall utilizes green technology and has a flexible design, allowing for different uses in the future. The group of five students are studying Snoqualmie as “a  microcosm of regional issues, such as flooding and suburban-urban connections,” said Jill Sterret, who teaches urban planning at UW. Snoqualmie is also a good test case for applying green measures, often pioneered by large cities, to smaller cities, she said. The students will be working on the study through June. - Dan Catchpole / Snoqualmie Valley Record
