Snoqualmie City Council held a public hearing on Monday, June 15, to consider updates to the Flood Hazard Regulations. Snoqualmie’s Flood Hazard Regulations, which provide development standards and minimize flood hazards in the city, are required to conform to both federal and state laws and regulations.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) regularly updates FIRMs and federal flood regulations, and the most recent update takes effect in August 2020. Amendments are proposed to Snoqualmie Chapter 15.12 SMC—Flood Hazard Regulations to ensure the city’s code conforms to federal law. While FEMA has adopted updated FIRMs for King County, there is no change to mapped floodplains or floodways in the city of Snoqualmie.
