HDCA Committees.

Design Committee
The Design Committee often works in collaboration with the City of Chelan to enhance the downtown for both residents and visitors. Historic building rehabilitation, street and alley cleanup, colorful banners, flower baskets, Holiday Lights at the Lake and other types of beautification improve the image of Historic Downtown Chelan and create an inviting place to shop, work, walk, invest in and live.

The Design Committee meets the first Thursday of the month at the HDCA Office from 9:00-10:00AM. If you are interested in participating in committee activities, contact Linda Van Lunsen – Chair at 682-5157 or lindainchelan@gmail.com.
