Regional Housing Approach

Our Valley Our Future has taken a lead role in helping alleviate the region’s housing crisis. Here is a look at the Our Valley Housing Solutions Group, as well as articles, surveys and studies being utilized by the Housing Solutions Group as it researches and recommends ways to make housing more available and affordable in the region.

The Bridge Research & Innovation District

In 2018, Our Valley Our Future realized an opportunity to build on the community’s strong core assets and competencies by forming The Bridge Research & Innovation District. Unlike other places where research occurs under one roof in one jurisdiction, The Bridge is a “community campus” of linked facilities, educational institutions and businesses in the Greater Wenatchee Area on both sides of the Columbia River. This model is seen as uniquely appropriate for the region, given its diverse resources and assets, entrepreneurial spirit, and a growing spirit of collaboration.
