• The first home is under construction in the expansive Fancher Heights development. The home belongs to Brad Selland, a partner in Fancher Heights Associates, which is developing the sagebrush-covered bluffs above East Wenatchee into residential lots. Developers will start selling lots after county commissioners give final approval to their plat. That detail is scheduled for the commissioners’ meeting late this week. Selland’s lot was permitted to be developed prior to plat approval because technically there could be one legal parcel of record, according to County Planner Jerry Litt. Curbs for a wide boulevard into the subdivision are now being installed and it will be paved later this fall, with work on other roads completed next spring. A million-gallon reservoir and accompanying water mains have been completed. Fifty-four lots are being developed in the first phase. About 160 are envisioned for the entire development.
