Chelan County PUD agrees to purchase riverfront property in Olds Station


Chelan County PUD commissioners have agreed to purchase a quarter-acre parcel of land along the Wenatchee River near the site of their new Olds Station Service Center.

The PUD sees the purchase as a chance to possibly extend the Apple Capital Loop Trail and add public access to the shoreline.

The PUD will pay $300,000 for the property, which currently includes a vacant rental home, with closing to take place before March 5.

The PUD is in the process of consolidating its headquarters nearby.
