Upper Wenatchee Community Lands Plan

The Upper Wenatchee River Basin is spectacularly beautiful, ecologically diverse and economically essential. The basin has a range of physical characteristics and uses, and a complex ownership pattern. Lower elevation areas along rivers and lakes are largely in private ownership, some substantially subdivided and built out. Surrounding lands are a checkerboard of private and public ownership.

Management of this forested checkerboard impacts many public priorities: an economy supported by local jobs and businesses, vibrant recreation opportunities, thriving populations of fish and wildlife, and reduced threat of catastrophic wildfire. Local leaders want to take a proactive approach to guiding the future land uses within the watershed. Developing a vision for future ownership and management of these lands is necessary and prudent, especially in light of potential large-scale land sales.

The Upper Wenatchee Community Lands Plan (UWCLP) project will bring together local stakeholders to create this vision and a work plan to implement it. The project is a joint effort of Chelan County, The Trust for Public Land, and the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust. Over the next year, we will be reaching out to landowners and residents in three areas: Peshasin Creek/Blewett Pass, the Chumstick valley, and Nason Creek/Lake Wenatchee.

Mark your calendars for the next Steering Committee meeting which will be held on Tuesday, September 15th from 1-4 pm at the Confluence Technology Center.
