Confluence Project up for rezoning vote Monday night

Eau Claire (WQOW) - The Confluence Project could be up for yet another vote Monday night.

The Eau Claire Plan Commission will hold a public hearing and a possible vote on rezoning for the project. Last month, the Waterways and Parks Commission voted to recommend rezoning the project, but with some stipulations. The group wants there to be more public dialogue about the project as a whole and more discussion about how far the project would be from the river.  Waterways and Parks also recommended public access on the bottom floors of the buildings that would face the river.  The Confluence would bring student housing, a community arts center and retail space downtown, with a possible price tag of $85 million.

The Plan Commission will also take a vote on a request by the YMCA to trade property on Menomonie Street for land off Galloway Street. It was approved unanimously by Waterways and Parks, also at last month's meeting. Monday night's meeting is at seven o'clock at city hall.
