The Snoqualmie Valley Preservation Alliance is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to protecting the rural character and the viability of farms, residents, and businesses of the beautiful Snoqualmie River Valley.
Since forming in 2010, the Snoqualmie Valley Preservation Alliance has matured from a group of concerned, hand-wringing neighbors with the audacity to sue the United States of America over their work on the Snoqualmie Falls, to an established force for forging productive relationships between community members, landowners, and county and state officials. We have advocated for effective solutions to shared challenges, and made headway on some key issues central to protecting the Valley. We were instrumental in returning the Tall Chief property to farmland. We secured an agreement with the County for a long-overdue flood impact study, and identified potential new solutions to drainage problems.
Perhaps even more importantly, in fighting the good fight, we have found our voice. The stakeholders and friends of the Snoqualmie Valley have found that together, we can make our voice heard in a way that will not only serve to protect what we have, but will ultimately make this Valley even more of a regional treasure for all of us to enjoy, prosper and celebrate.
