At the most recent Chelan City Council meeting, the council approved an agreement with Berger Partnership to develop a design for the Chelan Gorge Community Park, also known as the baseball fields near the Senior Center.

Councilmember Erin McArdle said the amount of check-ins Bergen was planning with the council was, in her words, vague, and being more specific about that was one of two things she wanted addressed:

Horne said there would be no problem with any of that; McArdle then made the motion to approve the contract. Bergen's being paid $108,000 for their work, 100,000 of that comes from the Chelan County PUD grant to craft a master plan for the park. The rest is coming from the city.
