Plaza Progress: Downtown’s Haymarket Plaza Poised for Completion

Although I have some doubt about how this "hardscape" meshes with the beautiful two river background, the water and fire features are intriguing (huddle around the fire on a winter's eve?). I'm also hopeful that the plaza is welcoming to us all, including shoppers, theatre-goers, skateboarders, bikers and walking families.

Air Play @The Pablo Center

Truly wondrous performance for all ages. I was laughing and crying last night, particularly as the older gentleman (second photo) was invited to play catch with the red balloon.

Let’s Talk Winter: Wintermission Initiative Wants Your Input

Great to see this initiative - particularly during this cold and snowy winter in Eau Claire. A sustained effort to keep us healthy and connected during the short days might include more events at the Pablo (even just music and dancing in the lobby), night fire pits at Haymarket Plaza, subsidized gym memberships, and organized walks across the three bridges (Phoenix Park, Confluence and Grand Avenue). I'll bring these ideas to the Visit Eau Claire-Pablo Center meetings.

Downtown Digs for Seniors

Great news for our downtown. Perhaps the commercial amenities could also be tailored to serve the many senior residents of the Park Tower Apartments, just
"kitty corner" to the planned development.
