COVID-19 Requirements for Retail Establishments with Occupancy Calculator »

COVID-19 Requirements

TO:  Retail Establishments
FROM:  David J Nalle, Deputy Fire Chief
DATE:  05/21/20

RE:  Phase 2 Limited In-Store Retail Operations

Dear Retail Establishments,

As Phase 2 Limited In-Store Retail Operations begin unfolding, Chelan County Fire District #3 and Leavenworth Development Services Department would like to provide some assistance to aid in determining COVID-19 Requirements Phase-2 Temporary maximum guest occupancy load reduction to 30%

Phase 2 temporarily requires guest occupancy to be reduced to 30% of the maximum building occupancy.

Chelan County Fire District #3 has developed a Mercantile/Retail calculator to assist with calculating the temporary phase-2 restrictions.

Annual Business Fire Safety Inspections are still required.  Chelan County Fire District #3 would like to ease the burden of interruption of business by offering up inspections by appointment.

If you would like to make an appointment for an inspection, please contact us at 509-548-7711.  We understand the financial impacts that have occurred and would like to work with you by planning for repairs that may be needed. Life safety violations will still be required to be corrected immediately.

Sincerely,
Dave Nalle

Notice – Housing Action Plan Grant Award »

Notice of Planning Grant

The City of Leavenworth has been awarded a $45,800 grant from the Department of Commerce to complete a Housing Action Plan. The funds were authorized as part of HB 1923 to increase residential building capacity in Washington communities. The Housing Action Plan will build on the existing Comprehensive Plan and Housing Needs Assessment with a focus on encouraging construction of additional affordable and market rate housing in a greater variety of housing types and at prices that are accessible to a greater variety of incomes. Specifically, the plan will include:

  • Quantify existing and projected housing needs for all income levels
  • Develop strategies to increase the supply of housing needed by those income levels
  • Analyze population and employment trends
  • Consider strategies to minimize displacement of low-income residents resulting from redevelopment
  • Review and evaluate the Comprehensive Plan Housing Element
  • Provide for participation and input from a variety of stakeholders
  • Include a schedule of programs and actions for implementation of the action plan

This opportunity comes at a great time for the City. The last housing study was the 2017 Housing Assessment, which was used to implement several code amendments. The new Housing Action Plan will provide more detailed information to guide the City’s future actions to improve housing diversity and affordable housing options.

The Planning Commission will be providing guidance and support for the development of the Housing Action Plan. The public is encouraged to attend the Planning Commission meeting or communicate with Commissioners. Additionally, interested persons may contact Development Services to sign up for notification of Housing Action Plan meetings; email Lilith Vespier dsmanager@cityofleavenworth.com or call City Hall (509) 548-5275 ex 131.
