Wanted—Bright, motivated person who cares about the future of Leavenworth to serve on the City of Leavenworth Planning Commission »

Serving on the planning commission is one of the most rewarding ways you can serve your community. As a commissioner, you will help set the long-term direction or vision for your community’s future. Although the planning commission is an advisory body which rarely makes final decisions, it is one of the most important groups in local government. In recent years, growth management and environmental legislation have emphasized the importance of land use issues.  You will be advising your community on these issues through adoption or amendment of the comprehensive plan, and will help implement its subdivision, zoning, and shoreline regulations.  Now is the time to get involved!  Positions are open and available. 

The City of Leavenworth is seeking adult volunteer applicants to fill a vacancy on the Leavenworth Planning Commission. The appointment is for a four-year unexpired term, and is made by the City Council.  The Planning Commission meets the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m.  Applicants must be at least 18 years of age, reside or own property inside the city limits of Leavenworth, or reside or own property within the urban growth area.   Letters of interest can be submitted to Nathan Pate, AICP, Development Services Manager, City of Leavenworth, PO Box 287, 700 Highway 2, Leavenworth, WA 98826 or dsmanager@cityofleavenworth.com.  The letters will be received up to January 1, 2014, and the selection process will be on or before January 31, 2014.  The Planning Commission advises the City Council on matters from city planning documents to specific texts of land use regulations.
