The HDCA Design Committee spent several years working with local architects to develop a conceptual plan for the space between the old bridge and Campbell’s.

Their goal was to create a more inviting space that gives locals and visitors better access to the PUD dock and lake.

In 2017, the HDCA presented the design to the City of Chelan, who committed $75,000 to jump start the project. Over the summer of 2017, fundraising efforts resulted in an additional $55,000. In the spring of 2018, the Chelan County PUD contributed $40,000.

With the help of our amazing community, the Woodin Avenue Landing project was completed in 2019 and is a beautiful addition to downtown Chelan for locals and visitors to enjoy.


The HDCA Design Committee had a goal of making the large electrical boxes on the corner of Johnson and Columbia “disappear”!

With the approval of the City and the DOT, they moved forward with the electrical wraps in summer of 2016. The wrap made a huge difference and was very successful in making the electrical boxes blend in.

We completed our second electrical box wrap in December 2017. The historical features can take you back in time as you reflect on historical photos and notes from the past. You can find the electrical box wrap on the corner of Woodin Ave. and Sanders.

A huge thank you to Chelan Printing and Custom Signs for donating their design talents and time to both of these projects!


Holiday Lighting

Each year, on the day after Thanksgiving, historic downtown Chelan shines as thousands of holiday lights are turned on to illuminate the Christmas tree and sidewalks of our small town.

Flower Baskets

Each summer, the HDCA purchases the 50+ stunning flower baskets you see as you stroll through historic downtown Chelan. These stunning baskets wouldn’t be around very long if it were not for the great partnership with have with the City of Chelan’s Park Department – who handles the daily watering throughout our long hot summers!
