The City of Wenatchee intends to adopt revisions to the Title 10 of the Wenatchee City Code.
The amendments include:
Draft revisions to 10.08, 10.10, and 10.48 of the Wenatchee City Code, creating definitions for two new land use categories (Cryptocurrency Mining and Data Center), incorporating the new land use categories in the district use chart, and adopting regulations applicable to those uses.
The amendments were sent to the Washington State Department of Commerce as required by RCW 36.70A.106 for an expedited 14-day comment period. The comment period began on November 30, 2018 and concludes on December 14, 2018. The City of Wenatchee has issued a determination of non-significance (DNS) in compliance with RCW 43.21C.
