Leavenworth Parking Study

In partnership with the Leavenworth Chamber of Commerce and the Chelan County Port District, the City of Leavenworth hired Rick Williams Consulting to work with community stakeholders on a downtown parking study.

The City is taking a comprehensive approach to parking as part of the economic development strategy for the community. Addressing parking challenges is particularly important as more development comes into Downtown, changing the landscape for parking supply and demand.

Throughout this process we will work to understand current parking conditions, obtain public input, collaborate with key stakeholders, and develop parking policy and management strategies that support community goals for economic development, housing, and transportation.

This study will first collect data on how downtown parking (both private and public) is utilized and where there may or may not be capacity issues. Then the team will analyze the data and make recommendations on how the City of Leavenworth can use best practice methods and manage its downtown parking inventory to make parking easier to access in the future and to plan for future increased inventory. The study team collected data on two specific days in Leavenworth to capture employee, customer and tourism parking. While we understand that parking is fully utilized for several special events held within the City, the first effort is to have a measurement of baseline parking needs prior to addressing parking for Oktoberfest or Christmas Lighting.
