Congratulations to the city of Wenatchee and Wenatchee Valley College in their partnership to develop and implement a plan to improve Fifth Street. This joint venture improves traffic flow, contributes to the beautification of this important arterial and, most importantly, substantially increases safety for bicyclists and pedestrians.
Local contractor Project Groundwork showed great ability to engage the community by setting up a series of open meetings at the college to hear ideas from interested people. They pulled together those ideas into a cost-effective plan, then provided the necessary oversight to complete the construction on time. This is a great example of the type of partnerships that add to a livable community. Well done!
