Residents are invited to meet with project team members and learn more about the Snoqualmie Community Center Expansion Project at two scheduled open houses on Wednesday, January 31,  2024, and Thursday, February 8, 2024. **

Both Community Center Expansion Open Houses will take place in the Snoqualmie Community Center/YMCA gymnasium from 5-7 pm. Pizza and refreshments will be provided. 

Drop in during the open houses and see the latest proposed Community Center Expansion project designs developed by Absher Construction and ALSC Architects; learn more about project funding; see how YMCA programs support the Snoqualmie Valley community; explore facility hours, open drop-in times, and daily and monthly facility usage options; ask questions, share input; and more. 

Background
The Community Center Expansion Project is part of the City’s approved Capital Improvement Plan, with $15 million in funding appropriated in the 2023-24 budget. The facility is owned by the City of Snoqualmie and is operated on behalf of the City by the nonprofit YMCA of Greater Seattle through a long-term agreement. While the facility was constructed in 2011 using funds provided by the developer of the master-planned Snoqualmie Ridge community, real estate excise tax, and grants, the ongoing maintenance and operations are supported by the usage fees of  facility users and not the public. The facility is open to everyone and will continue to be when expanded. 

The existing undersized facility – which also serves as a designated City emergency shelter - is too small to support the current population which has grown approximately 30% since opening. The Snoqualmie Valley is also deficient in aquatics space to meet the demand for swimming and water safety education, with only one small 85-year old publicly owned pool to serve the local area.  

The City’s operational agreement with the YMCA, as well as the nonprofit’s inclusive mission, ensures public access through free teen drop-in hours, daily passes, monthly memberships, and scholarship programs for those with demonstrated financial needs.

**The February 8 open house date is NEW and replaces the January 18 open house that was canceled/postponed due to inclement weather.
