LEAVENWORTH — A proposal for a 70-lot cluster subdivision, Alpenglow Village 3, on Ski Hill Drive in Leavenworth, is set to sprawl across roughly 28 acres, including wetland areas, and anticipated to house 175 people.

The city's recent stamp of non-significance moved the environmental impact assessment to the next step for determination, the city hearing examiner. The move also spurred some residents into questioning how the project could be built on apparent wetlands and how quickly it passed a step.

The proposal includes new Alpenglow Drive that would run from Central Avenue to Ski Hill Drive, extending Cascade Street and Central Avenue and providing land to the north for a potential future road.
