Next Tribune Building Project Meeting Set

Tue. Sep 5, 2017

(Wisconsin Rapids, Wisc. – September 5, 2017) – Work continues every day to realize the Tribune Building Project. The next community meeting is set for Tuesday, September 12, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Centralia Center, 220 Third Avenue South in Wisconsin Rapids.

Since completion of the Tribune Building Project’s programming and design process in 2014, there have been changes in the downtown, our community and the economy. Attendees will hear updates and provide input on the path forward, connect with neighbors who share interest in the Tribune’s various program areas, and more.

The September 12 meeting is free and all are welcome. Food and beverages are provided. Assistance with childcare and transportation is also available. For information, or to RSVP, call Incourage at 715.423.3863 or visit www.tribunebuilding.org.  

The Tribune will serve as a community accelerator – accelerating economic growth and opportunity, environmental sustainability, learning, creativity, and connections for community benefit. The building’s plans include a cafe/brewpub, creative workshop, culinary kitchen, microbrewery, recreational rental, art studio and gallery, game room and play area, rooftop lounge, and more.

To date, over 2,000 residents have been engaged in the process through participation in public meetings, tours, Tribune 101 presentations, and classroom and community activities. For regular updates, visit www.tribunebuilding.org, and connect with Incourage through Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.  To be added to the monthly Tribune update, contact Incourage.
