Deadline approaches for downtown improvement plan

WENATCHEE — Downtown property owners have just a few more weeks to agree on what they are willing to pay to make Wenatchee Avenue more attractive — or the work won’t be done next year.

How much to do? LID proposed for downtown improvements

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.

Avenue anew: Paving project drives streetscape ideas

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?”

City postpones paving until 2014

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.
