 Pateros is located in the sunny foothills of the eastern Cascades and on the shores of the Columbia and Methow Rivers. It is located on US-97, the Cascade Loop Scenic Highway, and the Okanogan Trails Scenic Byway. Pateros was officially incorporated on May 1, 1913. Pateros has a current population of 565. We are at the center of all your recreation activities. We have two water-front hotels, RV and boating facilities,  bakery and entertainment,  and numerous festivals in our lakeside parks, including the famous Apple Pie Jamboree. We welcome you to set up your recreation basecamp in Pateros and enjoy all four seasons of outdoor activities!

Please take a minute to fill out a survey

Okanogan County is working with Points Consulting (PC) to conduct a Housing Needs Study. This study will help regional leaders better understand the current and future housing needs of our communities. The project is funded through a Washington Commerce grant and being conducted under the supervision of a five person Steering Committee.

Okanogan County offers a unique and attractive quality of life that has both sustained its existing population and attracted new-comers from across the Pacific Northwest. These factors have helped contribute to housing cost and availability challenges for businesses and households across the region. Roughly one in four households in Okanogan County are cost-burdened according to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, meaning that they pay 30%+ of household income for housing. 

Community members who wish to provide their perspectives and input are welcome to complete this web-based survey, which will only take 5-10 minutes: https://cutt.ly/OkanoganCountyHousingNeedsSurvey

It's Census Time! 

Have you answered your census yet?  Make sure you are counted and complete your 2020 Census now. Every 10 years the government counts every person living in the country.  The data collected helps determine how much federal funding our community gets for schools, medical centers, roads, and much more.  The census is critical to making our community a better place to live. There are three easy ways to participate in the census: 

  1. Answer online at www.2020census.gov
  2. Call toll-free to 844.330.2020 (English) or 844.468.2020 (Spanish).  Call centers are open from 4 a.m. to 11 p.m.
  3. Return a paper form via the mail (this option is only available if you received a paper form in the mail) 

Remember, if you do not self-respond a census worker will be sent to your home later this summer to collect census information so the easiest solution is to self-respond now. 

I challenge all of you to answer the census now!  Let’s get a 100% participation rate for our community! 

You can find more information about the census at www.2020census.gov.
