Your voice does make a difference
Eau Claire City Council representatives want to hear your comments. If you can’t attend tonight’s meeting, please email your comments to the City Council. They need to know lots of people support the Confluence Project, so every email is very important. Emails in your own words and expressing your own passions for the Confluence Project and development of downtown will make a difference.
The Confluence Project invests local government, philanthropic, private and state dollars to create a project that no single entity could do alone. The project connects the UW-Eau Claire campus with the community and has the potential for significant economic development impact now and in the future.
Thank you for taking the time to speak out in support of downtown development.
