7/7/2021 City of St. Croix Falls invites community input on parks and trails:
 
The City of St. Croix Falls is seeking public input on its parks, trails, and other recreational assets. 
 
 “St. Croix Falls is known throughout the region as the City of Trails. This year, our Parks, Arts & Trails (PAT) Commission is updating the city’s Outdoor Recreation Plan, and we want to hear from the public. What do you like about our parks and trails? What needs to be improved? What kinds of outdoor activities do you enjoy? These are the sorts of questions we need our citizens and visitors to answer,” said Jeff Virchow, alderperson and member of the PAT Commission.
 
The City of St. Croix Falls last updated its Outdoor Recreation Plan five years ago. “The plan is important because it serves as a punch list for the City in terms of maintaining and improving our recreational assets,” said city administrator Joel West. “Plus, having a completed plan allows the City to compete for funding from the Wisconsin DNR.”
 
Preserving natural space and providing access to outdoor recreation is a crucial element of the quality of life within any community. The City of St. Croix Falls is especially rich in terms of recreational assets, with more than 700 acres of public parks, natural areas, and open space existing within the city limits.
 
“Five years ago, we heard from more than 400 respondents regarding the Outdoor Recreation Plan, which was fantastic,” said West. “We’re hoping to get the same level of response or better this year, and we’re making it very easy for folks to provide input through a survey with both digital and paper options.”
 
Over the course of the next few weeks, survey posters will be placed at park and trail locations, along with the library and City Hall, as well as at the Polk County Information Center. Using information printed on the poster, users can complete the survey on their smartphone, tablet, or computer. For those who prefer paper, printed surveys will be available at the library, at City Hall, and at the Polk County Information Center.
 
The City of St. Croix Falls has received technical assistance from the UW-Madison’s Division of Extension throughout the process of updating its Outdoor Recreation Plan, including process facilitation, survey design, research, and plan drafting. For more information regarding how Extension has assisted the city, please contact Don Wortham at [email protected] or (715) 485-8606.

SALE AND DEVELOPMENMT OF ST. CROIX FALLS CIVIC AUDITORIUM

 

The city of St. Croix Falls is proud to announce the commencement of historic building redevelopment of the historic Civic Auditorium building.

Representatives from Spiderwebb Capital with Mayor Kirk Anderson announced the commencement of the historic building redevelopment of the Civic Auditorium building on Tuesday March 30th, 2021.

The historical redevelopment plans call for the renovation of the theatre building, an upgrade of the performance hall, as well as expansions that include restaurant space, and an outdoor gathering space that celebrate and capitalize on the view of the St. Croix River.

The restoration and expansion of the Civic Auditorium is a catalyst for commercial redevelopment of adjacent property with the potential to create 70 full-time and part-time hospitality and performing arts jobs as well as local construction jobs.

The historic Civic Auditorium, which was built in 1917 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in January 2007.   It was designed to host touring vaudeville troupes as well as touring opera and theater companies. The upper-level performance hall served as a movie house until 1985, stood empty for just a few short years, and then in 1990 became the home of the Festival Theatre, a professional theatre company.  The street level space was a community center for many years, and in the 1940's hosted a series of small sewing factories, later becoming City office space and finally the municipal library from 1970 through 2009. 

The project will be funded by a unique combination of public & private investments coming from the Tax Increment District, Grants, Corporate Sponsorships, Individual Donors, and the State of Wisconsin Community Development Investment Grant. 

None of this would be possible without our many local partners and generous individual, corporate and foundation donors who have helped us reach this point in our story.  We would especially like to thank the following redevelopment partners:

Friends of the Civic Auditorium
Festival Theater

St. Croix Falls Centennial Committee
Hugh J Andersen Foundation

Andersen Corporation
Hardenbergh Foundation
Fred C. and Katherine B Anderson Foundation
Ravenholt Foundation

Studio M Architects

  • Hand Washing – Wash your hands with soap and water for a minimum of 20 – 30 seconds.  If soap and water is unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.  Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together. 
  • Avoid Touching Eyes, Nose, and Mouth and Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands. 
  • Avoid coughing into Hands – The Center for disease control (CDC) recommends sneezing or coughing into a tissue and then throwing the tissue away. 
  • Stay Home – If you are sick, stay home from work. 
  • Avoid Close Contact – The CDC is recommending that when in public people keep a social distance of 6 feet. 
  • Animals – Do not handle pets or animals while sick. 
  • Facemask – If you become sick contact your health-care provider.  Wear a facemask when you are around other people or pets and before you enter a health care providers office.  The CDC does not recommend people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.

 The City encourages other community organizations to continually assess their risk and consider limiting the size of their gatherings or cancelling them.
