Brier is a small, suburban, residential town located 15 miles north of Downtown Seattle, in Snohomish County. The population is approximately 6,300.

The City government consists of about 19 employees, working in three public services departments. Brier is 2.13 square miles with approximately 27 miles of streets and roads.

Throughout the City of Brier's history, development has resulted in an environment characterized by large homesites, wooded areas and semi-rural in nature.

The philosophy of the City is to continue to retain and maintain the basic, original, spacious and semi-rural wooded character of the areas and to remain relatively small, simple and intimate, with a minimum of regulation and taxation. It is intended that future development of Brier will be consistent and harmonious with the established pattern.

The overall goal of the city government is to preserve the existing character of The City of Brier as a single-family residential community, placing emphasis on the preservation of open space and natural landscape.

Novel Coronavirus is an evolving situation in Snohomish County. Information is changing frequently.

The City of Brier is operating under the guidance of county, state and national health officers on best practices to minimize exposure to keep our community members safe.

  • Snohomish County Health District
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

  • Fingerprinting Services Suspended

    March 11, 2020: Effective immediately:

    Out of an abundance of caution due to public health concerns, the Brier Police Department is suspending fingerprinting services to the public. This includes fingerprinting as part of the application process for an original Concealed Pistol License. The suspension of fingerprinting is not permanent, but due to the fluidity of the public health situation, we are not able to provide an estimated date for return of services at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience and encourage people to stay safe and healthy by following guidelines from the Snohomish County Department of Public Health Department.

    Please note that renewal, late renewal (within 90 days of expiration), and replacement concealed pistol license applications are still being accepted and processed at the Brier Police Department during normal business hours, as no fingerprinting is required.

    • Boards and Commissions

    Having access to a safe place to walk can be an obstacle for many people who want to be active outdoors. The Brier Walks program encourages residents of all abilities to use Brier Park's ADA-accessible walking path and to keep track of their distance (walked or run) as a means to prevent disease and injury. The walking path and program are the first of their kind in Brier, and were made possible with support from the Verdant Health Commission.
