About the North Star Opportunity Zones Partnership
There are seven individual stars in the Big Dipper, and together they point at the North Star. So when seven communities in North Central Washington agreed to pool resources to lift up all of their Opportunity Zones, they chose the North Star Opportunity Zones as the name of their collaboration.
The North Star Opportunity Zones offer both common opportunities across the region – especially housing for single-family, multi-family, and transit-served neighborhoods – and unique assets, like the rural industrial sites in Malaga, Rock Island, and Omak, and urban mixed use waterfront in Wenatchee and Rock Island.
The Zones benefit from their proximity to communities experiencing growth and prosperity (e.g. East Wenatchee, Wenatchee, Leavenworth, Chelan, and the Central Okanagan region of British Columbia, Canada, which is known as the Palm Springs of Canada).
