Future of Prairie du Chien’s main street organization uncertain

pdri

By Correne Martin

Prairie du Chien Downtown Revitalization Inc. (PDRI) has hit a tipping point. Funding and the number of volunteers are dwindling, leaving the future uncertain unless the community comes forward in support of the organization.

A public meeting is slated for Wednesday, Oct. 2, at 6 p.m. in room 236 of the Crawford County Administration Building in Prairie du Chien. This meeting will allow discussion about what the public wants to see happen with PDRI and whether enough consistent funding can be found to support the organization moving forward. The real question is whether PDRI can stay open or if it will need to close.
