LA CROSSE, Wis. - What started as an effort to repair a fountain becomes a much bigger project.

The goal is to make the area more attractive. "This is Main Street, we are the eastern anchor to the downtown, you drive past us on your way to all sorts of important areas, including Grandad Bluff, so we'd like to make it more welcoming," said Library Director Kelly Krieg-Sigman.
The project should be in a design phase for the next two years. After that, they'll start seeking donations.
