Leavenworth Ice Pavilion tapped as a top regional project
The North Central Washington Economic Development District has selected the Leavenworth Ice Pavilion as one of the top projects in the region. These are projects considered to be of regional economic significance for Chelan, Douglas and Okanogan Counties.

NCWEDD annually ranks the top projects for the region, according the Jennifer Korfiatis, administrator, NCWEDD.

"In February, we put the call out and say we are soliciting projects in NCW that organizations or cities feel are of economic significance," Korfiatis said. "So, we get submissions that way. They are reviewed and ranked by a committee. That's how we end up with our results."

Wastewater treatment plant expansion could threaten Community Cupboard
Leavenworth City officials say future expansion of the wastewater treatment plant could force the Community Cupboard out of the 14th Street building it has occupied for more than 20 years.

City Administrator Joel Walinski said the logical place for the wastewater treatment plant to expand is up the hill, into the public works building, which also houses the Cupboard.

City awarded $150,000 grant to study wetlands
The city of Leavenworth has received notice it has been awarded a $150,000 grant from the Department of Ecology Centennial program. The city must match $50,000 to receive the grant.

City Development Director Nathan Pate said they have been waiting for this grant for some time.

"We knew there were some hints we are getting the money, but it is not official. We can celebrate and say that we've made one of the biggest efforts to get this particular task done through a point to where we finally have the money to get the work started," Pate said, at the July 8 city study session. "I do want to talk about getting the work started. This is going to take some time, because it will take energy, work, action, effort over months of study, data analysis, review."

The city will use the grant money to study the wetlands in the city's urban growth area, Ski Hill. Pate said the whole process could take 18 months to two years.

Spotter time is well spent time
No such thing as a useless phone call for Andrew Brown.

Brown, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service, said that the NWS has never received a phone call from a spotter that was a waste of time.

Spotters are the eyes and ears of the NWS in places where its radars sometimes don't reach. Brown offered a training session for spotters in Wenatchee two weeks ago, in which he reiterated the importance of the spotter's job and his or her calls when describing a weather event.

Nelson family builds new commercial building at old warehouse site
The Nelson Family Legacy Group has completed construction on a portion of the old warehouse property in downtown Leavenworth. Der Turmplatz (tower space) features more than 10,000 square feet of retail space.

One building is two stories, with 4,800 square feet on ground level and 3,000 square feet on the second story with deck space. The second building is smaller, closer to 3,000 square feet.

The Nelson family has owned the warehouse property since the mid-90s. A portion was sold to the city and became the site of the Festhalle. There were plans for a larger development on the remaining warehouse site, in the $75-100 million range, but ultimately the family decided against that, feeling it was more than the city needed at the time.
