Concerning Continued Land Acquisition
Stehekin Heritage believes:
In order for Stehekin to sustain a unique and valuable private community into the future, the security and permanence of the valley's current private land base is critical. The value of Stehekin's private community is proven over time, noteworthy enough to be set aside in legislation and preferred by the visiting public.
The private land base within the valley has been reduced by seventy five percent of original private ownership since 1968 affecting the future character of Stehekin. With lands being removed from private ownership without limitation, we are at a critical point in time as to whether the value of Stehekin's one of a kind culture can continue.
Our goal is to preserve and protect what remaining private lands exist in Stehekin and call for "No further net loss of private land base value." We champion the cause that all pertinent governing agencies recognize, adopt and support this principle, thereby displaying support for the future of the private community within Stehekin, by assuring permanence of our land base.
