[2/17/22] Manson Council Discusses Bluewater Terrace Proposal

Posted in Community

A large turnout online for Tuesday night’s Manson Community Council meeting; the topic that seemed to interest most people was a conditional use permit that had been applied for in the Rocky Point area for an agri-tourism and short-term rental development. What worried most people were the traffic impacts that would have for Manson, and whether the State Department of Transportation would consider lowering the speed limit on Highway 150 as a result.

One of those who spoke at Tuesday night’s meeting was Richard Ulhorn, who referenced a letter Brian Patterson wrote to the City of Chelan about the proposed development:

The Chelan Planning Commission is considering the project, the deadline for public comment to the commission on the development is Friday March 4th.
