Chelan County Port District is exploring the possibility of funding part of the Pybus Market project through a Federal economic development Grant. Jennifer Korfiatus, Executive Director for the North Central Washington Economic Development District met with Port Commissioners on Wednesday to discuss the grant proposal. Afterwards she talked with Wenatchee Bureau Chief Steve Hair . .
She told Commissioners that the Pybus Project has been listed as a top priority by her board of directors.
No decision was forthcoming at Wednesday’s meeting. At this point the Commissioners still have more questions than answers.Chelan Port Executive Director, Mark Urdahl said he was doubtful the project would qualify for the 1.5 million dollar grant based on his knowledge of the eligibility criteria
The Pybus Market project is a joint venture involving the Port, City of Wenatchee and a private developer.
