Preliminary Findings

There were two presentations held in October 2019 of the Eau Claire Parking Study preliminary findings. Each presentation had a separate focus (one focused on the residential & neighborhood parking and the other focused on the downtown parking) but the public was invited to attend both presentations to offer comments & suggestions prior to the final study.
