River deck plans go in front of city commission

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW) - An idea in the works for close to 10 years will go in front of a city commission next week.

The plan for a deck over looking the Chippewa River at the corner of 5th and Menomonie Street will go to the water ways and parks commission.

The project would create a deck with a view of the river as well as tube landing with a gradual path to get to the rivers edge.

"I think it will be a really nice peaceful place," said Lisa Aspenson, part of the Water Street Business Improvement District. "It will be a place for people to really enjoy the area. And it will be a good break if you're on the trail excising."

The $30,000 project would be funded through money set aside by the Water Street business Improvement District as well as donations.

The city council has final say on the project
