The Si View Metropolitan Park District’s Annual Budget is presented as a policy document, an operations guide, a financial plan and a communications tool. Funding for the District comes from a combination of property taxes, earned revenue and grants. Development of the annual budget is a joint effort between the citizens, the Board and the staff (see below for current and past District budgets).
Citizens are encouraged to comment on the proposed budget and future spending priorities by attending a Commission Meeting or contacting a Commission Member or the District Office. Commission Meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month at 6:30 pm at the North Annex, 219 E Park Street, North Bend.

The Si View Metropolitan Park District has adopted an update to our Recreation System Plan also commonly referred to as a comprehensive plan. This plan was created through input from public surveys, community meetings and stakeholder meetings reflecting community interests and establishing long-term goals and priorities for land acquisition, facility development, recreation programming and parks management. The Plan includes a vision for the District’s park and recreation system, goals and objectives, a capital improvements and investment program, and implementation strategies for parks, natural areas and trails, helping help guide the District in allocating resources for many years to come.
During the course of the Comprehensive Plan Update, the District surveyed the community to evaluate performance of various District functions, and explore public priorities for future park and recreation services and facilities. One survey was specific to Si View Metropolitan Park District residents, while a separate survey was conducted for City of Snoqualmie residents to assess community interest for development of a new regional swimming pool in the Snoqualmie Valley.
The District conducted a Community Interest and Opinion Survey during the summer of 2012 to help establish priorities for the future development of parks and recreation facilities, programs and services within the community.
