District is proposing a capital bond measure in November 2018 to address the
recreation needs of our growing community. Proposition 1 to Connect and Protect

facilities to accommodate expanded use.
The District’s 2017 Comprehensive
Plan Update identifies connected trail network, and preservation of open space
for passive and active recreation as the community’s top priorities for future
development. In order to provide for the recreation needs of a rapidly growing
Snoqualmie Valley population, District is proposing a $14.7M capital bond
measure to address these community priorities.
Proposition 1 would develop
trails linking greenspaces, regional trails and riverfront access, acquire
property for future parks, and improve and equip existing park and recreational
facilities to support expanded use. Proposed improvements to existing parks
include a parking area, multipurpose trails and mountain bike trails at Tennant
Trailhead Park; facility development at Tollgate Farm Park to support
educational and recreational activities; rehabilitation of the North Bend Train
Depot and surrounding park; safety and facility improvements at Torguson Park and
renovation of the aging skate park; and improvements at District’s other parks
