47 Degrees North Planned Mixed-Use Development
In 2002 the Cle Elum City Council approved a Master Site Plan and an Annexation and Development Agreement to guide the development of approximately 1,100 acres generally bounded by I-90, Bullfrog Road, SR-903, the City Cemetery, and the Washington State Horse Park. This planned mixed use development, as originally approved by the City Council provided for the construction of 1,334 dwelling units, 50-affordable housing units, a 75-acre business park, associated amenities, infrastructure improvements, and 524-acres of open space. Other than the dedication of properties to the School District and the City, until recently, no actions have been taken to implement the approved Master Site Plan.
In 2019 the City was notified that Suncadia, the successors in interest to the original Project Sponsor, Trendwest, had entered into a purchase and sale agreement to sell approximately 809-acres within the Bullfrog UGA Master Site Plan to Sun Communities. Sun Communities has now submitted to the City an application to modify the Master Site Plan. With the requested modifications, the project would include 757 residential units, 50 affordable housing units, 25-acre commercial center, 627 RVs or equivalent recreational units, associated amenities, infrastructure improvements, and 513-acres of open space.
