Application: The City of Selah is preparing a plan for the development of a Sub-Area Plan of its central urban area to encourage economic development and enhance the quality of life within the area of the neighborhood plan by providing for a mixed use-infill overlay or other development regulation changes which would encourage higher quality housing, encourage mixed use development, promote commerce, create revitalized neighborhoods, and beautify the neighborhood planning area.

In addition to the informational meeting, the City is also seeking stakeholders who would be interested in sharing their thoughts, goals, and objectives for the City in an individual setting with the City’s land use development team.   If you or someone you know is interested in being a part of this planning effort please contact Jeff Peters, City of Selah Community Development Supervisor at 509-698-7367, or jeff.peters@selahwa.gov.
