Peru moving closer to getting rid of eyesore hotel

Posted by wlpo on November 1, 2016

A longtime eyesore on the north end of Peru could be coming down in a few months.

The Peru City Council approved a development agreement for the old Econo Lodge property near Arbys in which the future property owner demolishes the hotel by March of next year. The cost of tearing down the hotel along May Road could cost $750,000. The developer would take on that cost.

Mayor Scott Harl says they are close to finding a developer for the rundown hotel that’s sat empty for well over a decade. He’s not sure if the potential new owners want to open another hotel or look to add a retail store.
