FDL Downtown Exploratory Committee Holds First Meeting

The Fond du Lac Downtown Exploratory Committee elected officers Wednesday night and set its course. Former Fond du Lac City Council President Sam Meyer was elected Chairman and Sarah Van Buren was elected Vice Chair by committee members. Meyer says he’s happy to serve. He says they have one goal, but a lot of voices to help them reach it. He says they are charged with how to make downtown Fond du Lac a better place, he says they will take that serious and will get a lot of good ideas. Taking their cue from the work she did with the Lakeside Park Exploratory Committee the Downtown Exploratory Committee is asking Diana Tscheschlok of the UW Extension Office to be their facilitator. The committee first meeting will involve a bus tour of the downtown.
