Timeline for Pine Street Reconstruction Project Phase I »

June 10, 2019

Memorandum: Pine Street Reconstruction Project – Phase I

The City of Leavenworth City Council awarded the Pine Street Reconstruction Phase I Project to Strider Construction on May 20, 2019. The onsite construction is scheduled to begin on June 17, 2019. The construction schedule is very compact, 44 working days; the tentative completion time for the project is the week of August 19th. To accomplish this goal, the work schedule for Strider Construction will be 5 days a week, Monday through Friday, with a number of 10-hour days. Work will begin at 7:00 AM.

Beginning on Monday, June 17th, Pine Street from Titus Road to Ski Hill Drive will be closed to all traffic except residents needing to access their property. The multiuse pathway located along the north side of Pine Street will also be closed for safety concerns for the duration of the project. In addition, the project does include the replacement of all corner street lights in the project area. The current streetlights will be removed and the intersections will be dark until the new streetlights are in place.

The contractor will try and provide property access to the individual homes on Pine Street; however, there will be times during the construction day when access may be closed for periods of time as work is being completed. In addition, some homes may be without water for several hours during the day as this project does include the replacement of some sections of water transmission lines. A notice will be provided to those homes when the loss of water is anticipated.

If additional information is needed at this time, please contact me at (509) 548-5275 or at jwalinski@cityofleavenowrth.com We do know that road construction projects are disruptive and at times a significant inconvenience. I appreciate your support during the construction phase of the project.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Resignation of Councilmember Elmer Larsen

Leavenworth City Councilmember Elmer Larsen announced his resignation from the City Council effective May 28, 2019.

Council Member Larsen was the longest standing Council Member of the current City Council. Elmer was first elected to the Leavenworth City Council in 1987 and served eleven years until 1998 when he was elected Mayor to complete the remaining two-year term of the previous Mayor who had stepped down. In 2000 he did not seek re-election because of the demands of his regular employment. Eight years later, in 2008, he again ran for City Council and was elected to the City Council and has served on the City Council since that time.  In 2011, Elmer also served as Interim Mayor from September through December 2011.

Councilmember Larsen pushed the Council to find a variety of creative solutions for the ongoing operations of the City.  He was instrumental in a number of Public Works improvements for the City which included major improvements to both the City’s water and sewer plants. He was also instrumental in a number of development code changes that allowed for additional density and more living spaces while preserving the character of the neighborhoods. Elmer represented the City on a number of various regional and local committees over his period of time in office. He represented the City previously on the Link Transit Board, Chelan County Solid Waste Committee, and currently serves on the Leavenworth Area Promotions Committee, Festhalle Oversight Committee, and the Residential Advisory Committee. Elmer’s service to the community of Leavenworth and his long standing civic engagement has been invaluable and he will be missed.

At this time, the City Council will discuss the options on filling the vacancy on the City Council at the June 11, 2019 City Council Study Session.
