DECI and S. Barstow BID to Unveil Master Plan

Posted May 3rd, 2012

Come and see what everyone will be talking about!  Downtown Eau Claire is growing and changing, and its future could be guided by the conceptual ideas of a Master Plan submitted by DECI and the South Barstow Business Improvement District!  It's an exciting time!

The ideas of the Downtown Master Plan will be unveiled this Thursday,  May 3rd, at the RCU Corporate Center.  

Phil Johnson, Landscape Architect of Ayres Associates, and Designer and Landscape Architect Garret Perry of Design Studio will lead the discussion and show sketches that have been developed to enhance a thriving Downtown Eau Claire.  A design and consultant team was directed and hired to develop the plans by DECI and the S. Barstow bid earlier this year.

The conceptual Master Plan presents a vision of what Downtown can become.  The potential realization of that vision will be the result of thousands of actions made by both the public and private sectors.  It can provide a framework for coordinating and integrating future development in a way that will allow Downtown to reach its full potential.

Thank you to those who have participated in discussions, attended meetings, and contributed comments.  Your insights, ideas, and constructive criticism were invaluable in the preparation of this conceptual plan that will give us some thoughts on our future.  We hope everyone continues to be actively engaged in making Downtown an exciting and vibrant place!
