North End meeting set for July 11.
Douglas County, East Wenatchee and the Port of Douglas County are sponsoring a community meeting on July 11 to get input about the future of the North End, the 317 acres adjacent to the east approach to the Odabashian Bridge.
The county, city and port share future land use and design concepts, road and other infrastructure investments, funding, and permit streamlining proposals. The meeting will also present the draft planned action ordinance that is intended to streamline the environmental review process for future development.
The area has been planned and zoned for commercial and mixed-use development for many years, but little growth has occurred during that time. The draft Master Site Plan reflects work with property owners, agencies and other visionaries to help establish the North End as a prosperous center for job-creating industry and a tourist and recreation destination.
The county and city are expected to jointly adopt the subarea plan and planned action ordinance in fall 2016.
The meeting will is at 5:30 p.m. July 11 at the Douglas County Public Services Building Hearing Room, 140 19th Street NW, East Wenatchee.
