Waterfront Development

In 1961 prior to the opening of Chelan County Public Utility District’s Rocky Reach Dam facility, many landholders in the City of Entiat sold off their property and relocated. Some relocated farther upland of the soon-to-be-flooded areas they sold, others left the area entirely. As a result of the relocations and change in the shape and form of the City of Entiat, much of the City itself was lost, but the community remained strong.
Fifty years later, the members of this community have availed themselves of an opportunity to re-establish themselves as a prominent City in North Central Washington.

As part of a purchase and trade agreement with the Chelan County PUD, the City of Entiat now controls approximately 18 acres of undeveloped shoreline along Lake Entiat as of 2011, which currently is part of a comprehensive waterfront development initiative.

The images below show the buildable area located on the waterfront and an early draft plan for the waterfront.
