Biggest Thing We Should Make Happen Soon

1st Place: The Confluence Project
2nd Place: Restaurant on the river
3rd Place: Attract higher-paying jobs

Whether we want a Trader Joe’s, a Chili’s, or a major league sports franchise in the Chippewa Valley, we always seem to have ideas about the missing elements that would make our fine region that much better. According to you, the thing we’re pining for the most is currently in progress: The winner for Biggest Thing We Should Make Happen Soon is the Confluence Project. While its precise design and funding sources are still up for discussion, there is no question that much excitement has been generated by this performing arts-driven vision. According to voters, the Valley is also clamoring for a riverside restaurant (second place) and ways to attract higher-paying jobs (third place). –Ed Hudgins
