The Confluence Project Needs Your Input

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

As a part of developing a business plan for the community arts center proposed in the Confluence Project, information and opinion is being sought from the residents of Eau Claire and the surrounding area to gauge the level of audience participation a new venue in Eau Claire might realize.  While some usage can be assumed, as the facility will replace existing venues, additional space will create additional opportunities.

The survey can be accessed online at  Preliminary results will be captured on Friday, September 21.  Additional responses will be included in the final report which will be complete in early November.  The survey and business plan analysis are being completed by VenuWorks.


Arts Center


Background - The Confluence Project is a public-private partnership that intends to construct a new community arts center, commercial/retail complex and university student housing at the confluence of the Chippewa and Eau Claire rivers in downtown Eau Claire. The Confluence Project is consistent with hundreds of discussions with local citizens and visitors about the need for redevelopment of the South Barstow district, better utilization of the downtown riverfront, and new or improved community events facilities in Eau Claire. The Confluence Project is planned on property commonly referred to as the "Haymarket Site," consisting of the Farmers Store and Market Square buildings that border the downtown Haymarket parking lot. The property is being acquired by Haymarket Concepts LLC. Haymarket Concepts is a partnership between Commonweal Development Corp., Market & Johnson Inc. and Blugold Real Estate LLC, a subsidiary of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Foundation.
