Downtown Onalaska represents our unique heritage and is a source of pride for the entire community. Centering Onalaska is committed to the revitalization, beautification, and the sustainability of this historic area, as well as the continued growth toward waterfront access.

Centering Onalaska, which was organized in 1996, is an independent, non-profit (501-C-3) organization, of volunteer city residents and business representatives. We are focused on revitalizing, beautifying, and growing the downtown area and expanding involvement of citizens, businesses, and civic organizations in "BUILDING COMMUNITY PRIDE".
