Eau Claire Plan Commission Rejects Tavern…

replied to: Since the author seems to me to be in…

I believe many kinds of well run businesses can be a positive asset to a neighborhood, including a tavern, though it's hard to know how it'll all shake out without allowing said businesses to try. I guess it's always a gamble. But the tone of the post here has more to do with what appears to be extremely vague reasoning on the permit rejection. Seems like the objections should be much better explained by the Plan Commission.

And no, I have no plans to move to the (fantastic) Historic Randall Park Neighborhood, though I used to live on the far side of it, towards the Kaiser Lumber Co. building!

Dave – the area you're talking about is now called the "Cannery District" formerly the "West Bank Development District," slated for major redevelopment by the City of Eau Claire in the coming years.

Brace Yourself for an Eatery Explosion

replied to: No mention of the Local Lounge. So sad.

Hi Christina, we have reached out to the team at the Local Lounge and they weren't yet ready for coverage. Instead of just forcing coverage on people before they're ready, we try and work with owners of new businesses on the timing of articles on their places, when appropriate. So we're on hold waiting to hear from them. We're super excited for what they're doing over there on the Westside and will be doing more to spread the word soon!

The Best Of results seen here are from September 2015, before the Huebsch remodel was scrapped. Future plans for that property are uncertain.
