This is my childhood town, I've grown up here. I can't imagine spending my younger years anywhere else. It's one of THE best places to have a family. You get to know the neighborhood kids and have block parties in the summer. Everything is in walking distance and there's a very wide variety of parks all over Snoqualmie. The best part is the scenery, with the cascades literally right there it never ceases to amaze me. They have been tearing down trees and housing is very expensive so you have to keep that in mind but despite that it continues to feel like I'm surrounded by nature. Expect drizzly rain and cloudy skies, but in my personal opinion with the mountains and trees and fog it makes autumn feel cozy. Also winter is bearable because there is greenery year round so you never feel like it's dead outside. Overall it's my home and I love it here. I can't imagine growing up anywhere else.

I appreciate that Snoqualmie focuses on community activities and volunteering. Although, I wish that the Green City Planning techniques we use are actually environmental...there are so many cookie cutter homes and unnecessary lawns that use non-local plants and need fertilizers. Our new development is barely two stories high, with no residency above commercial use, and a lot of forest is torn down due to our lack of planning. Any trees taken down from now on should be for mixed development with apartments above. This would reduce our urban sprawl and meet the diverse demands of this vastly growing community.
I've lived in Snoqualmie for about six months, and as a young married couple it is really hard to connect to this community. Most of the people in this city are families or older retired couples, and because cost of living is so high it is not a very friendly place for people who are just starting out. It is a cute city with lots of potential, but we won't be living here for much longer because it is not a community we feel we can thrive in.
