Eau Claire (WQOW) - Downtown Eau Claire got some attention from out-of-towners today. Economic Development Directors from all over the state came here to take a look at our evolution.
The purpose was for them to get out into their field of work and study specific successes and failures that can help them develop their own cities. The crew took a tour, met with the city council, and learned about various other projects happening downtown.
"Today, we met with the city council to talk about the confluence project and that might be a great example other communities can point to in terms of how they can revitalize their downtowns and improve the art scenes in their communities," says Patrick Drinan, the Economic Development Director of Wisconsin.
Eau Claire is one of many stops the group will be making around Wisconsin
