Hatchery LLC started this petition to City of La Crosse, Wisconsin Common Council and

Because negative noise and a petition of opposition is attempting to be louder than the positive majority, we would be beyond thankful for everyone to sign this petition in favor of the Hatchery LLC plan (which is broke down below) to repurpose the historic fish control laboratory building in Riverside park into a multi-use community space, single unit bed and breakfast, and international garden inspired patio. By adding your name to this, you're showing your support to two young La Crosse native entrepreneurs with a passion to grow La Crosse's community and provide a space for all to enjoy in Riverside park. We thank you for your support.  -Marty & Tiff - Hatchery LLC: A CONFLUENCE THAT FUELS THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS LA CROSSE

The second floor will be fully restored to its original historical use of lodging.
