In April, Chelan PUD Commissioners unanimously approved a facilities alternative that would consolidate Wenatchee-area PUD operations into a new Service Center to be built in Olds Station. However, even before the first shovel of dirt is turned for the new Chelan PUD Service Center, work is underway to consider redevelopment of the current space occupied by the PUD Headquarters campus at Fifth Street and North Wenatchee Avenue.
The Port of Chelan County, the City of Wenatchee and Chelan PUD have joined together in a community process to consider the possibilities of what could be developed at the Fifth Street site. It’s an exciting time to think about the potential that a developer or a team of developers, with input from community members, could create on this prime location at the gateway to downtown.
