It looks like a new restaurant/bar and grill establishment could be heading to downtown Snoqualmie in the coming months, but in a slightly different spot than you might think.
Residents living near the old Bank of America building located at 38565 SE River Street (kitty corner from city hall) recently received notices of a public hearing about the building, scheduled before the King County Hearing Examiner on April 27th at 6PM at Snoqualmie City Hall, 38624 River Street.
The owner of the building, Little Wanderer, LLC, has applied for a conditional use permit, and is proposing to convert the existing building into a bar and grill. The building, which was sold in October 2016, will stay the same size, just interior and exterior changes are proposed to transition it to a restaurant.
City of Snoqualmie Community Development Director Mark Hofman said a restaurant/bar & grill is a zoning land use that’s allowable on the site once a conditional use permit has been issued, which is required so the city and residents can review and discuss issues like hours, noise, parking, etc.
The city will also accept written comments if residents cannot make the Public Hearing on April 27th. Those comments should be submitted to: City of Snoqualmie, PO Box 987 Snoqualmie, WA 98065, Attention: Gwyn Berry or firstname.lastname@example.org
