Pybus Market to Add Plaza

The following is reprinted from a Feb. 18 article written and published by The Wenatchee World: “The area just south of Pybus Public Market is being turned into a plaza that officials hope will make it more enticing to visitors. Pybus Executive Director Steve Robinson said construction costs are estimated at about $380,000, but the project hasn’t yet gone out to bid. “The goal is to put it out to bid soon — I would say late winter, early spring — and build it once the weather improves this summer,” Robinson said.
