WENATCHEE — Wenatchee Valley’s home building industry was poised to take off when the pandemic hit last spring.
Welcome to the Wenatchee Valley Business World, a monthly business publication covering North Central Washington.
WENATCHEE — Builders are booked and likely to stay that way, say housing industry representatives.
WENATCHEE — Our Valley Our Future’s Housing Solutions Group released a study back in 2018 that included 18 recommendations for “common sense” changes to help solve the Wenatchee Valley’s housing crisis.
COVID-19 is the “elephant in the room” when it comes to talking about 2020’s economic performance — and expectations for 2021, says Don Meseck, the state’s regional economist who covers Chelan and Douglas counties.
Strong working relationships, local decision-making and a community commitment put Confluence Health front and center in 2020 to help North Central Washington cope with the pandemic.
Wenatchee Valley business leaders anticipated good things happening in 2020.
