Action City receives Paragon Award for economic development
The 2016 Winner of the Paragon Economic Impact Award is unveiled.
Action City received the award Thursday at their facility in Eau Claire.
The Paragon Award is given every year to a local business which is a model of excellence in economic development of the Eau Claire area.
Organizers say Action City won because of the economic impact, due to expanding their existing facility, increasing the overall tax base, and creating new jobs.
"We have had so much support not just from the community, but our business partners, even the people we met through the construction, families of the owners and most importantly our staff," explains Resort General Manager Benny Anderson.
Every year, 350,000 people visit Action City.
