By now you're well accustomed to the new pavement on southbound/westside lanes! Traffic has been shifted over to the west side lanes for weeks now; allowing crews to move their construction efforts over to improving the northbound (eastside) Business 51 lanes. Crews have now completed grading and storm sewer work on the northbound lanes and are continuing to install concrete pavement on those lanes with additional curb and gutter installations as project completion gets closer on horizon line. Crews have begun installing sidewalk along northbound Business 51 with more to come next week.

The overall phase one of this long-term project is scheduled for completion in November, 2016 with future northern (Whiting) phases (phase two: Elm Street to Minnesota Avenue (2018/19); phase three: Tommy's Turnpike to Elm Street (2018/19); and central Plover (phase four; Springville Drive to Tommy's Turnpike (2021).  Mark the calendar for Wednesday, November 16 at 3 p.m. for a special ribbon-cutting, road opening celebration in Sky Club road area with reception to follow inside! 

Welcome to PABA: Home of the Plover Area Business Association! 

The Plover Area Business Association was established in 1979 to give Plover businesses a stronger voice in the Stevens Point Chamber of Commerce. Today PABA continues to be the voice of the business community. The purpose of the association is to foster and advance business and community interests throughout the Greater Plover Area.

PABA works with the Village of Plover to develop a stronger community, retain existing businesses, and draw new businesses to the area. PABA draws on its alliances with the Portage County Business Council, the Stevens Point Area CVB, and Portage County Planning & Zoning.  PABA events, webinars and group activities provide both educational and social opportunities within the PABA membership. These events are great networking tools to help businesses develop new prospects while learning about their fellow Plover area business partners. 

PABA prides itself in giving back to the community and members through grant and scholarship programs as well as working with Operation Bootstrap with our Brat Fry and Christmas Presents from the Heart campaigns.
