We live in a little slice of heaven!
Our monthly meetings are upbeat and informative
We get together in our green space to celebrate the change of seasons
Phoenix Park has activities galore
Our community garden produces 1,000's of pounds of veggies
The Chippewa River is a great place to float on a hot summer day

The North River Fronts Neighborhood is dedicated to preserving and enhancing the quality of life
for our neighbors by working together to maintain and improve our community.

Welcome friends and North River Fronts Neighbors and Businesses! Things are moving and shaking in a good way in our little piece of Eau Claire. Phoenix Parkside is booming! Businesses are filling up and there are waiting lists for apartments and condos.

Responsible landlords are investing in some of our rental properties and home owners are encouraging each other to take pride in their properties.

A lot of these advances have been possible because we have an active and interested neighborhood association.

Neighborhood Meeting Summary
Wednesday, November 15th 2017
Tempo Coffee House

We had the neighborhood meeting on Wednesday and got a good discussion going on severals subjects:

1. We talked about rezoning a Industrial block to something that would allow retail /residential/performance. The group agreed that this type of zoning would complement the good things that have happened on North Barstow, the High Bridge and the Cannery District. We voted to start the re-zoning process and to meet with City Staff to start making it happen.

2. We passed around the Tribute Trail animation for all to see. Everyone agreed that there is way more trail in the video than there is land in those three blocks, Folks want to see the trail develop and compliment the activities that are happening now.

3. We announced the availability of FREE sidewalk sand at the City Shops - bring your bucket and use to keep sidewalks free of ice this winter.

4. We learned that Jim Southworth will be taking Tim Golden's place as the North Side police officer liaison when Tim retires this spring. (Thanks Tim! Welcome Jim!)

5. We agreed that the Neighborhood meetings should take place Quarterly or as needed. New steering committee members are welcome and an election should happen at the next quarterly meeting...Feb/March?

6. We talked about where to meet and decided to explore the Owen Rust Community Room - The Local Store - The Forest St. Pavilion weather permitting - Other.

Meeting Adjourned at 7:58!

Happy Holidays All!

Thanks to all that joined us on a beautiful August evening!
Thanks to the Veterans for providing the grill and brats!

Mark Beckfield and Jeff Pippinger answered questions
about the future Tribute Trail.

Sorry we didn't see any plans - The city and FEMA are going back and forth. Looks like they are planning on construction in 2019. Gardening should go as is for one more season.

Gardeners, Veterans, and Neighbors met to talk about the Tribute Trail. Vets presented the neighborhood with a US flag and stand - we'll make sure it gets placed in a great place.
