The City of Wenatchee development codes are intended to implement the City Comprehensive Plan.  The City's Comprehensive Plan provides the overarching intent behind the development codes.  The following codes combined with State and Federal laws govern development in the City of Wenatchee.  Most developments are influenced by various city codes.  Navigating these codes can be difficult and thus we encourage early involvement of City staff in your project to help clarify which codes apply.  Pre-application conferences are required by city code to help developments get started on the right foot.

  • Zoning Code
  • Subdivision Code (Updated 2012)
  • SEPA guidelines
  • City of Wenatchee Administrative Code

There are also portions of other city codes that apply to development such as codes governing utilities.  All of these codes are available under the City Code link.  Please feel free to contact City staff early in your project development phase to help understand which codes apply.
