Site Development Plan for Kettle Falls
The purpose of the Kettle Falls Site Development Plan is to provide a quality experience for visitors and employees in the Kettle Falls area. The plan will consider improvements to recreational amenities, accessibility, wayfinding, overnight visitor opportunities, and improvements to housing options for staff in the area while assuring the ongoing protection of natural and cultural reasources. The plan is needed to identify site improvements such as access for boats, houseboats, and seaplanes; additional concession staff housing and visitor overnight lodging; trails and other day-use amenities; or other amenities within a historic landscape.
Once the site development plan is complete, the compliance phase of the project—in which an environmental assessment will be prepared—will begin. The first newsletter with information about the project is now available. More information about this project can also be found on the Planning, Environment, and Public Comment site.
