The Office of the Hearing Examiner was created by the City Council. The duties and responsibilities of the Hearing Examiner are outlined within Chapter 1.09 Wenatchee City Code (WCC).

The Hearing Examiner is required to conduct public hearings and proceedings pursuant to WCC Titles 10, 11, 12, and 13, and conduct such other hearings or meetings as the City Council may from time to time deem appropriate.

The Hearing Examiner shall interpret, review and implement land use regulations, and hear appeals from recommendations, permits, decisions or determinations made by a City official.

The Hearing Examiner is tasked with making decisions solely based upon the policies of the comprehensive planning documents of the City, the standards set forth in the various development regulations of the City or any other applicable program adopted by the City Council. The Hearing Examiner’s decision may grant or deny the application, or may attach reasonable conditions, modifications and restrictions found necessary to make the project compatible with its location and to carry out the goals and policies of the comprehensive plan, or other applicable plans or programs adopted by the City Council.

Public hearings with the Hearing Examiner are typically held the fourth Tuesday of each month. Hearings are open to the public and begin at 3:00 p.m. All meetings are held at Wenatchee City Hall, 129 South Chelan Avenue.
