Omak, Washington

'''Omak''' ( , Omak is the largest municipality of Okanogan County (Okanogan County, Washington) and the largest municipality in Central Washington north of Wenatchee (Wenatchee, Washington). The Greater Omak Area (Greater Omak) of around 8,229 inhabitants as of the 2010 census (2010 United States Census) is the largest urban cluster (United States urban area) in the Okanogan Country (Okanagan Country) region, encompassing most of its twin city (twin cities (geographical proximity)) of Okanogan (Okanogan, Washington). The population has increased significantly since the 1910 census (1910 United States Census), reporting 520 residents just prior to incorporation (municipal corporation) in 1911.

The land that is now Omak had been inhabited by various Native American (Native Americans in the United States) tribes before the arrival of non-indigenous (indigenous peoples) settlers in the early 19th century. The city began to develop after the completion of the Okanogan Irrigation Project affecting the Grand Coulee Dam and other nearby electric facilities. The housing and municipal infrastructure, along with regional infrastructure connecting the new town (planned community) to other municipalities, were built simultaneously in 1908 supported by the local agricultural industry (Agriculture in the United States). The name Omak comes from the Okanagan (Okanagan language) placename umák , . Omak acts as the gateway to the Okanogan National Forest and consists of a central business district and residential neighborhoods.

Omak is a code city (city government in Washington (state)) governed by a seven-member council (local government) and the state's 4th district (Washington's 4th congressional district). Omak's economy is dominated by the primary industries (primary industry) of agriculture and forestry, although economic diversification has occurred with sawmills and recreational tourism. Nearby recreational destinations include walking trails, state parks (List of Washington state parks) and national forests (U.S. National Forest), such as Conconully State Park, Bridgeport State Park and Osoyoos Lake State Park. The city is home to a weekly newspaper, the ''Omak–Okanogan County Chronicle'', and a Wenatchee Valley College campus. Standards for education in Omak are higher than the state's average, though drugs and alcohol remains a problem among students. The prominent U.S. Route 97 (U.S. Route 97 in Washington) intersects in town, while Washington State Route 155, as well as Washington State Route 215, connects the city to Okanogan (Okanogan, Washington) and Nespelem (Nespelem, Washington), respectively.
