WENATCHEE — Property owners here in the commercial core must decide by early August whether to spend an estimated $900,000 to spiff-up a four-block stretch of Wenatchee Avenue with a sleeker, more contemporary look.
WENATCHEE — Nearly 15 years of cars, trucks, bikes, parades, walkers, shoppers, plowed snow and baking sun have taken their toll on the main thoroughfare through the city’s commercial core. “Wenatchee Avenue is ready for a facelift,” said Linda Haglund, executive director of the Wenatchee Downtown Association. “But how much of one?”
WENATCHEE — A four-block repaving project of Wenatchee Avenue through the downtown core has been postponed until 2014 to allow more planning time, city officials announced Wednesday. Delay of the street overlay project, originally scheduled for next summer, will give planners, property owners and business managers more time to decide what additional changes and amenities — other than new asphalt — should be added when downtown streets are torn up.
