Proposition No. 1
Community Center Preservation and Parks/Trails Improvement Bonds

The Board of Directors of the Si View Metropolitan Park District adopted Resolution No. 2010-05 concerning Si View Community Center preservation and parks and trail improvements.  This proposition authorizes the District to: renovate and preserve Si View Community Center, including aged roof replacement, deteriorated exterior repairs and seismic safety upgrades; make parks improvements, including playgrounds/playfields, expanded walking/biking trails, restrooms and picnic areas; provide access and park improvements at Tollgate Farm; refinance 2009 general obligation bonds; issue up to $6,700,000 in general obligation bonds maturing within a maximum term of 20 years; and levy excess property taxes annually to repay such bonds.  Shall this proposition be approved:



If approved by voters, this proposition would enable Si View Metropolitan Park District to preserve and renovate the historic Si View Community Center, originally built in 1938. Si View Community Center serves Snoqualmie Valley residents and provides recreation programs, youth and team sports, health and wellness for families and seniors, aquatics, arts, pre-school and after-school programs, specialized recreation, youth summer camps, farmers market, summer concerts and festivals and other community events. Si View Community Center renovations would include replacement of the aged and leaking roof, repairs to broken windows and deteriorated areas of the original log siding exterior, and seismic safety upgrades to the original foundation to meet current safety standards. This measure would also permit adjacent park improvements including replacement of an aged play structure with two children’s playgrounds, renovation of playfields with proper grading, drainage, and improved safety, and additional restrooms, picnic areas, walking and biking trails around the park perimeter. Additionally, this proposition would permit community access and park improvements at Tollgate Farm including a playground, picnic area, restrooms, walking and biking trails and connections, and preservation of natural areas and views of Mount Si. The measure would permit refinancing of the 2009 general obligation bonds that were used for parking lot construction at Si View Community Center. The preservation, renovations, park improvements and refinancing would be financed with no more than $6,700,000 in general obligation bonds.

Renew our Commitment

Dear Voter:

For 72 years, Si View has been vital to maintaining a healthy and well-connected community in the Snoqualmie Valley.  But today, it’s in serious need of repair.  We need to preserve Si View so it’s here for everyone to enjoy - now and for generations to come.


Urgent Needs

 “Repairs will tackle decades of deferred maintenance to the 1938 structure." (Snoqualmie Valley Record).  This measure will fix Si View’s leaking roof, replace broken windows, repair deteriorated areas of the log siding and make seismic safety upgrades to the original foundation to meet current safety standards.


Improved Safety and Access

Park use is at an all-time high.  Recreation program use has doubled in three years.  This measure will make needed improvements at Si View and access at Tollgate Farm.  Playfields will be renovated for improved safety.  Playgrounds, restrooms, picnic tables, and trails will be added.  Natural areas will be preserved.  Endorsements include Snoqualmie Valley Soccer Association.
