Submitted by Susan Peterson
The Wenatchee River Ranger District is undergoing an extensive remodeling of the Leavenworth compound to provide for more efficient operations and safety. The initial phase will affect the Leavenworth front reception office from Oct. 15 until the first of November, however the entrance to the office will be changed temporarily.
During this time, visitors will be able to obtain information, permits, and local maps by entering through the side door located at the far right-hand side of the current main administrative building. The temporary entrance will be marked and is fully accessible for people with disabilities.
Winter office hours begin October 15th and the reception office will be open Monday through Friday and closed on Saturdays. The office phone number will remain the same during the remodel and is 548-2550.
The Fire Management department including the fire warehouse, is undergoing extensive remodeling that will continue through spring of 2013. Unofficial vehicles or general public will no longer be able to travel through the compound because of congestion and safety concerns.
