Anderson Road is 9.15 acres surrounded by views of the Butte, Stormy Mountain, and the Chelan River Gorge. The land is owned by Chelan Valley Housing Trust and located at 38 Anderson Road. This property will be developed into 41 income qualified homes for ownership and five market rate lots within a span of 5 years. While still in initial design and pro-forma phases, CVHTs vision for Anderson Road would be to serve attainable home ownership to local wage earners in the Chelan Valley in a setting that matches the agricultural and aesthetic beauty of the town. We will accomplish this by using farm style and craftsman design for homes, creating a trails, views and open space oriented layout for the neighborhood, and utilizing public grants, private funding, and community fundraising to reach the target pricing goals that will actually make homes attainable for our community.
The Anderson Road development is a result of true community effort and communication. CVHT previously had a donation of 2 acres from the Lookout (local developer and neighborhood), available just below the Lookout property in Chelan. The 7 Acres Foundation was in the middle of utilizing the 9 acres for a Community Center, when early talks resulted in the idea of a land swap and purchase, 2 acres intown for 5 acres just outside of town with a purchase the other 4 at a discounted rate. The Community Center at Lake Chelan now has a new home that is closer to town and more accessible for youth and the community, and has even expanded and purchased neighboring acreage. CVHT now has 9 beautiful acres to build a community of attainable mixed rate housing. CVHT can’t thank the Lookout and the 7 acres foundation enough for making this dream come true!
We’ve completed our initial public hearing for the development, with one more upcoming and have semi-finalized the conceptual design (pictured to the right).
