The city of Snoqualmie is still the fastest-growing city in the state since the start of the decade — and it’s not even close.
Numbers recently released by the Office of Financial Management show Snoqualmie’s April 2009 population at 9,730. That’s 370 people higher than the census number a year ago.
Since 2000, Snoqualmie has grown from 1,631, adding more than 8,000 to its population. That’s an increase of 496 percent, easily the highest in Washington. The city of Roy is second on that list at 234 percent, while DuPont is third at 212 percent.
