Valley bigger than editorial stated

Letter to the Editor

In your well done editorial about schools and bussing, you stated that “the Snoqualmie Valley has always been one big community, stretching from the outskirts of Fall City to Snoqualmie Pass.”

I think of the Snoqualmie Valley as stretching from Snoqualmie Pass to Monroe. Perhaps the Upper Snoqualmie Valley stretches from Snoqualmie Pass to Fall City. This whole Valley is a much bigger place.

This distinction is important, from land-use policy and issues to transportation, fish and rivers, tourism and other matters.
