Questions linger about 400 Block

WAUSAU( WAOW)--While renovations are complete at Wausau's 400 Block, there are still changes in store for the space.

Local leaders hope to change the area from a right-of-way to a Wausau City Park. They say giving the 400 Block that distinction could help clear up the gray area for how the space should be handled.

"Law enforcement was just kinda confused about what to do," says Wausau Mayor Jim Tipple. "Now there will be rules and regulations.  Not prohibitive, but at least it makes it a little bit more functional and people will know how to use the lot."

Leaders expect the change to happen within the next couple of weeks.

Tipple also suggests closing off 4th Street during events.  It's a practice currently in place during the Wednesday night Concert in the Square, and he Tipple says he wants to make it a permanent policy.
