Creation of TIF 11 gets green light from Eau Claire city council

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW)- The Eau Claire city council has approved another controversial Tax Increment District.

In Tuesday's council meeting, members had a short debate leading their 8-3 vote in favor of creating TIF District 11.  This new district includes the Lismore Hotel, which is nearly finished with an extensive remodeling project.  The approval also lead to a vote on changing the boundaries of TIF District 10.  Council members also passed this 8-3.

Also on Tuesday's agenda was voting on purchasing property near I-94 and Cameron Street, which was unanimously passed by council members.  Although there is no current plan for the piece of land, it could be used for a new I-94 interchange. Some council members believe building a new exit off of I-94 would funnel traffic in to downtown Eau Claire.
