Eau Claire’s City council approves $5 million pledge for Confluence Project

Eau Claire (WQOW) – By a vote of 8-3 Eau Claire’s city council takes a stand on the Confluence Project. Tuesday night the council pledged $5 million to the project, to be directed toward the community arts center.

That pledge is based on a number of conditions. Chief among those is a $25 million commitment from the state for the $51 million community arts facility. Even if the council approves the pledge as stated, a number of things have to happen for the funding to go through.

Developers behind the $80 million project have asked the city for $10.9 million to support the student housing and arts center and an additional $2.5 million for a plaza leading up to the building.
