LEAVENWORTH, WA, March 29, 2024 – The City of Leavenworth is seeking volunteers to apply for two (2) positions on the Downtown Steering Committee, a citizen advisory board, beginning in May 2024.

The Downtown Steering Committee was established with the purpose of overseeing the streetscape development, tourism facilities and park improvements within the Leavenworth Commercial Districts to ensure consistency with the Downtown Master Plan and to review and recommend changes to the City’s operational support and maintenance of the Commercial Districts that better serve and enhance the Old-World Bavarian theme and economic activity. The Downtown Steering Committee’s role includes evaluating and studying new ideas brought forward by business owners, property owners, and residents which may enhance business and tourism within all Commercial Districts of the City.

The City is looking to fill two (2) positions. Potential committee members must own property or operate a business in downtown Leavenworth. Preference will be given to property owners and/or business operators located outside of the Front Street Commercial District area.
