From the President
Thanks for visiting our website!
Eagle River was selected as a “Main Street” community in 1999, joining over 1,500 other cities in 44 states that use proven strategies to accomplish building improvements, downtown beautification, business retention and recruitment, community branding and promotions, and other methods that lead to a vibrant and viable downtown.

Eagle River Revitalization Executive Director Al Pittelko and the nine member Board of Directors are working hard every day to make downtown Eagle River a better place, economically, aesthetically and socially. A major part of our annual budget comes from fees assessed by a statutorily-authorized Business Improvement District on all commercial properties in the City. We sincerely thank these businesses as well as Eagle River’s Mayor and City Council for their enthusiastic ongoing support of our mission and our projects.
We welcome your interest and assistance in helping the City of Eagle River grow and prosper!
Jim Holperin, President
ERRP Board of Directors
