General Information

In response to the community's desire to control land use development such as lot size and commercial zoning, Clyde Hill was incorporated as a Town on March 31, 1953, with 971 people and 271 homes. In 1998, Clyde Hill became a non-charter Code City and now finds itself almost fully developed with about 3000 residents and 1100 households.

The majority of Clyde Hill is zoned for single-family use with the exception of two commercially zoned areas: a gas station and the Queen Bee Cafe. In addition to a small government zone, the City is home to four schools: two public schools - Clyde Hill Elementary and Chinook Middle School; and two private schools: Bellevue Christian School and Sacred Heart School. The City's minimum lot size is 20,000 square feet, although many smaller lots exist which pre-date the incorporation of the City.
