Traffic, growth planning meeting
This public meeting is to provide information and discussion on potential traffic and growth impacts from several large new projects the city of Leavenworth has or may approve. City officials have failed to address the growth and traffic concerns many community members have expressed. The city administration continues to approve new building development by mis-representing peak traffic times, thus avoiding development mitigation triggers within the SEPA (State Environmental Protection Act) review process. Wednesday, April 25, 7 p.m. at Leavenworth Fire Hall, 228 Chumstick Hwy. Contact goehner@live.com. (e17)
