Current Planning



The Current Planning Division is responsible for the administration and regulation of land development, comprehensive land use planning, environmental services, and the processing of land use permits by applying current Chelan County Codes, the Shoreline Master Program, county-adopted city codes for the Urban Growth Areas of Wenatchee, Cashmere, Chelan, Entiat & Leavenworth and other Washington State and US Federal laws.

The Division provides assistance to the public on questions regarding: land development; subdivision; land use and zoning; environmental applications; shoreline development; and provides technical support to the Planning Commission; Hearing Examiner; the Board of County Commissioners, and other agencies on a wide array of community development issues.
