Snoqualmie was once named the #1 City for Young Families in Washington by NerdWallet. It is strategically located about 30 minutes from the tech centers of Seattle, Bellevue, Redmond and Kirkland.
Its many attractions include scenic beauty, outdoor activities and high ranked schools. In contrast to other Eastside suburbs, home prices are more affordable. Also some large employers have moved here to take advantage of the low land prices and easy access to I-90.
These have been key factors in the fast growth. As a result, the population increased significantly between 2000 and 2010 from 2,150 to 10,670.
According a Seattle Times article, Snoqualmie Ridge is home to more than 80 percent of Snoqualmie’s population. The Ridge was developed following the addition of 1,300 acres of underdeveloped land to Snoqualmie in the nineties. The Snoqualmie Ridge Home Owners Association governs the communities on both sides of Snoqualmie Parkway.
