Next Tribune Building Project Meeting Set

Mon. Nov 23, 2015

(Wisconsin Rapids, Wisc. – November 23, 2015) – With construction underway, progress continues on Incourage’s Tribune Building Project in downtown Wisconsin Rapids. The next community meeting is set for Tuesday, December 1, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Renaissance Learning, 2911 Peach Street in Wisconsin Rapids.

Attendees will receive Project and community updates, connect with neighbors who share interest in the Tribune’s various program areas, and more. Participants will also be part of an activity to help shape future opportunities and learning events that complement the Tribune’s anticipated use.

The December 1 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 is a “community accelerator” – accelerating economic growth and opportunity, environmental sustainability, learning, creativity, and connections for community benefit. The building will 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, more than 1,200 residents have invested more than 6,300 hours in this process, discussing all aspects of the building’s future use and design, including building layout, materials, art and environmentally friendly features.

Construction on the building began in November and continues throughout 2016, with an anticipated opening in early 2017. 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.
