A proposal to bring ice skating to downtown Eau Claire is gliding along.
Early Wednesday morning, the Eau Claire Redevelopment Authority approved the site plan for a new, temporary ice skating rink in front of the new parking ramp off of North Barstow Street.
News 18 told you last week about the city's plans to build the rink, which would cost about $4,000 to install.
"Long term though, everybody knows it is going to be a redevelopment site nothing was imminent, so they thought, let's take a looking at this," Mike Schatz said. "So the RDA did approve allowing the use of that. The Parks and Rec Department would be responsible for it."
The city says the proposal will need to go before the Eau Claire Plan Commission for final approval before the temporary rink could be installed.
