Located in the heart of the Cascades Mountains of Washington, 80 minutes from Bellevue and only 10 minutes southwest of the town of Cle Elum, is Trailside at Woods and Steele, a mountain community developed by Kittitas County real estate company, Sapphire Skies Land Company...They work on the downtown planning committee for Vision Cle Elum and assist in creating a marketing platform for local businesses. Water rights are a tricky business in rural areas such as upper Kittitas County. Sapphire Skies has pioneered the area's Water Banking system. Approved by the Department of Ecology, Water Banking commodifies water in a way that reimburses those with senior water rights. Developing an area that gets year-round use can be difficult. Keeping the health of an area as a chief concern allows developers to create infrastructure that promotes safe and effective access management. Roads are cleared and maintained throughout the year, creating an ideal situation for people who both utilize and appreciate nature. Creating a community that functions as a home base for outdoor enthusiasts allows for better roads and maintenance while reducing transient traffic. This cultivates a tight knit community that works hard to preserve its scenic surroundings.
