A waterfront alive

It’s happening on Wenatchee’s waterfront. The parks, the trails, and now the Pybus Public Market have injected a new sense of vitality like nothing we’ve seen since before the great recession. A new, large apartment development is under construction. A hotel development is said to be pending for the city property south of Riverwalk Crossing. The city’s dream-filled waterfront development plan adopted so many years ago in such a hopeful age is still far from being realized, but the idea that sparked it is still alive — that Wenatchee’s Columbia waterfront is a great community asset.

There was news recently of tangible evidence. The city of Wenatchee received the first of many monthly value-added sales tax rebates for the waterfront district — $46,700. The rebate was authorized by the Legislature, based on increased revenue and property value on the waterfront. If all goes well, the rebate could amount to $8 million over 25 years.
