Washington — The Chelan Douglas Port Authority will enter into a written agreement, or interlocal agreement, with all partners who’ve agreed to pay for a feasibility study on a regional sports complex. Partners include the cities of Wenatchee and East Wenatchee, Chelan and Douglas Counties, the Port Authority and a group known as a public facilities district that oversees the Town Toyota Center.

The study is meant to determine whether a regional sports complex would be successful and serve a purpose in the area. It will look at three options including one with a baseball fourplex, sports courts, turf fields, an indoor Olympic-size pool, splash pads and water slides. It will also consider an indoor and an outdoor aquatics center.

A solicitation was already put out with seven consultants responding. The port has already narrowed it down to three finalists. Those finalists will make presentations and answer questions at a public meeting on March 15. A total of $300,000 will be spent on the feasibility study and it could take a year to complete.
