PROUDLY SERVING MEMBERS THROUGHOUT CHELAN, DOUGLAS & OKANOGAN COUNTIES
Chelan County is in the process of updating what is known as the Shoreline Master Program. It affects all properties in the unincorporated portions of Chelan County that lie within 200 feet of all major water bodies, including some of the more minor streams.
The changes could have significant impacts to Chelan County property owners in areas mentioned above, such as the ability to rebuild after a loss, setbacks from the water body, or ability to use the property in other ways.
BNCW and NCWAR sought assistance in identifying all unique property owners in the County that would potentially be affected and sent out 4,400 of these post cards (see above) with the intent of notifying them--most of whom likely have no idea that this process is taking place.
Property owners can contact the County and see if they will be affected by any of the changes by calling (509) 667-6225. Be prepared to tell them your Assessor’s parcel number. A public hearing is scheduled before the Chelan County Commissioners on August 15, at 1:00 p.m, at 400 Douglas Street, Wenatchee. You can communicate any concerns that you may have to the Commissioners at this meeting.
