Eau Claire is taking a big step toward turning the Campus View Inn & Suites into apartments.
The city’s plan commission yesterday signed-off on the proposal. Developers want to remodel the old motel and turn it into 87 new apartments. Planners say the new apartments could help with Eau Claire’s lack of affordable apartments. The full city council is expected to vote on the idea next. Work would start after that and likely wrap-up by next fall.
