Bridge Meeting for Downtown Businesses:

The City will hold two meetings to discuss the possibility of “one-waying” the old bridge. The first one is specifically for YOU – the downtown business community. The goal is to give you the entire picture of the project and open it up for questions. That meeting will be held next week – on Wednesday 3/1 at 5:30pm at City Hall.

The second meeting will be an open house for the general public held on Thursday, 3/2 at City Hall beginning at 4pm.The City has arranged to have key traffic and urban planners attend both meetings to explain the project and answer questions.

Annual Membership Dinner – Save the Date:

We will be having our annual membership dinner on March 23rd at 6pm. More information is to follow, but please save the date. It’s going to be a great, informative evening!

Small Town Christmas video:

With 2000+ participants and 27+ activities, this year’s STC was bigger than ever. We hope to continue to grow it in the future. If you weren’t able to get out and be a part of the activities, see the video of our Small Town Christmas on this website.  It will give you an idea of some of the fun stuff we had downtown in December! GoLakeChelan will be creating a shortened version to use to promote 2017 Small Town Christmas!

Stormy Mountain Brewing Façade: 

To the delight of everybody, Stormy Mountain unexpectedly uncovered old Kline’s signage while working on their façade this week! We’ve talked to co-owner and contractor KC Knight and he has let us know they are hoping to preserve that old signage! We’re excited to see their work unfold.

City Council Visit to Olympia:

Thank you to Mayor Cooney and members of City Council for taking time to express their support for Main Street and share the plans for Woodin Avenue Landing while in Olympia this week!
