Vision for downtown Eau Claire parking lot released


Eau Claire (WQOW) - Whatis now an under-utilized parking lot could one day become a busy publicplaza. 

Tuesday,the vision for the Haymarket parking lot in downtown Eau Claire was laid out.

Twoworkshops were held to find out what citizens wanted the plaza to looklike.  A report from those workshopsshows it should be a place with year-round use that would enhance the downtownexperience but not be a destination.

Thereport says it should have a park-like setting that incorporates the look of Phoenix Park without duplicating it.

Thereshould be good views of, and access to the rivers.  The report also suggests if a pedestrian bridgeis built, the timing should be weighed and that improvements to the plazashould take priority there's no word on when designs may take shape.
