The city of Wenatchee is on the cusp of a radical transformation with three major developments on the edges of downtown that could collectively cost $300 million in an eight-block area.

While the level of investment is staggering, the physical changes to the downtown will be no less dramatic if these plans come to fruition. Massive changs bring tremendous opportunities and also significant risks unless we are prepared for those changes. We need to understand how these changes will impact the rest of downtown and think through the best way to create a thriving downtown as things change.
