Hotel groundbreaking planned for next month

Posted by wlpo on August 5, 2009

A little over a month from now a new hotel could start construction off Etna Road in Ottawa.
The Ottawa City Council Tuesday passed along the final plat for a new Fairfield Inn & Suites to the planning commission. If all the paperwork goes as scheduled, Larry Bianchi with Janko Realty says dirt should start moving next month with the hotel open by July of next year.
Bianchi says the hotel project will cost $9 million but should bring in over 100 thousand dollars in pillow tax money each year. He says Janko also will try and sell three out lots on the property for commercial use. Bianchi says they have an unsigned contract in hand for one of the out lots and have received interest about the other two spots.
