Sometimes events at Cascade View Elementary School on Snoqualmie Ridge send parents scouting through side streets and parking lots at Ridge retailers for parking sports. This may soon change.
The Snoqualmie Valley School Board approved an overflow parking agreement with the city of Snoqualmie at its April 29 meeting.
The city agreed to let Cascade View use existing and planned public parking upon request. The existing lot is for Snoqualmie Ridge Neighborhood Center Community Park. The city plans to build additional parking for a planned YMCA-operated community center next to the school.
The school district would also scratch the city’s back. Community center patrons could use Cascade View’s parking area during non-school hours, including holidays and weekends.
Snoqualmie City Administrator Bob Larson said the overflow parking agreement was important for the community center, but would only be used when necessary.
“We have parking that we believe is adequate on site,” Larson said. “The overflow with the school district will allow larger events to occur at the community center from time to time, but it wouldn’t be a regular occurrence.”
