The city of Snoqualmie recently was awarded $10,000 from the Port of Seattle to help fund economic development initiatives such as tourism.
Community Development Director Mark Hofman said the grant is specific to Savor Snoqualmie, a partnership with Mountains to Sound Greenway to promote local food and farms, arts and culture, outdoor activities, and independent businesses in the Snoqualmie Valley.
“The grant funds will be used for marketing materials to support ‘local first’ products, guidebooks, and wine events,” Hofman said, “which will help promote tourism.”
Grant funds will also assist in installing new wayfinding signs at the Snoqualmie Valley Trail to direct hikers and bikers to Snoqualmie Falls, Historic Downtown Snoqualmie, and Meadowbrook Farm.
