Placemaking Haymarket Plaza

Community inspiration is needed for a special placemaking project in downtown Eau Claire

Friday, November 1, 2013

Eau Claire City Council Representative Catherine Emmanuelle invites you to join a team of citizens working together to help plan the new downtown public plaza. The group is working with the West Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission to use placemaking theory as a civic engagement tool for citizens to help plan the public plaza. Placemaking is the planning, design and management of public spaces. It involves listening to and asking questions of the people who live, work and play in a  particular space to determine their needs and  aspirations. This means YOU get to have a say in how the public plaza is designed!

For information on the Haymarket Plaza placemaking project, check out Volume One’s article by Thom Fountain at: http://volumeone.org/articles/2013/10/23/6269_placemaking_the_plaza

There is no cost to participate, as the project is 100% locally funded through donations. Advance registration is necessary. Ideal people to be a part of the planning are those who love downtown Eau Claire, want to be a part of a forward-thinking Eau Claire, and want to see another public park success in the heart of our city.

Monday, November 4 is the deadline to be a part of the planning process.
