Housing

Our residents know that Leavenworth is a uniquely beautiful and scenic Bavarian village set in the foothills of the Cascade mountains. In recent years, we’ve grown in both residents and in tourism. In response to that, we’re developing a robust housing program to ensure we can grow sustainably. From our Housing Action Plan (HAP) to changing code to make our homes more fire resilient, our goal is to ensure that we have a long-term plan for meeting the housing needs of our community. 

The Planning Commission, who as a body make recommendations to City Council for our long-range planning and legislative policy is currently reviewing zone changes, and finalizing the planned action items for 2022.

To join in the conversation, we invite you to attend a Planning Commission Meeting and learn about the topics below.
