Request Question & Answer

Q: Is there a separate land capacity analysis being done, perhaps by Chelan County?

A: The County is not doing a separate land capacity at this time. Our goal is to get several recommendations on UGA expansion locations and then look at how those fit with the County. We know that a Countywide updated will be needed if the City chooses to expand the UGA.

Q: What is the current status of the city’s water rights for new growth? Can you point me in the right direction to find information related to that?

A: The City is in mitigation over water rights working with the Icicle Water Rights User Group to identify water strategies. The City currently serves water to a larger region than our UGA and we have enough water rights to serve growth over the next 50 years. The current water plan is on the city website.
