Loop Trail hearings

EAST WENATCHEE – You can expect a large turnout tonight for a public hearing in East Wenatchee. The City Council and Douglas County Commissioners will field comments on proposed development restrictions along 78 acres of land along the Eastside Apple Capital Loop Trail.

The State plans to sell the property and local government leaders are working to establish land use rules as a way to mitigate possible impacts to the Trail and its natural aesthetics.

A standing-room only crowd turned out recently for an open house on the issue and officials expect another big turnout for tonight’s meeting at East Wenatchee City Hall. It begins at 6 pm.
