Story: 84-Room Hotel on Waterfront Approved on America’s Cup Avenue

Gail: “There are enough hotels and too many people and not enough parking. Need I say more?”

Donna: “I have mixed feelings … It is an eyesore as it is now. It is inevitable that something will be built there. The owner’s testimony was impressive. He has agreed to keeping public access, the ice rink, and some public parking. Hopefully it will look nice, attract tourist that stay overnight as opposed to day trippers, and bring revenue to town. Time will tell.”
