Potential investors and others with an interest in seeing that a hotel for business travelers is built in Winamac are invited to a luncheon next week to discuss the project and get more information. Wisconsin-based Cobblestone Development wants to build a 44-bed facility, and a recent feasibility study found the community can support a 40-room property. Pulaski County Economic Development Director Nathan P. Origer has scheduled an informational meeting Wednesday, Nov. 20 at noon EST at the Winamac Event Center at the corner of Logan and Adams Streets and encourages anyone whose business might be interested in investing in or financing the project to attend. Origer says his office is very serious about moving forward to see that the structure is built and encourages anyone who wants to attend the informational meeting to RSVP by Friday to (574) 946-3869 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cobblestone Development specializes in building budget friendly accommodations for business travelers and others in small communities like Winamac. Developer John F. Seibert says the accommodations would be similar to those offered by a Holiday Inn Express or Hampton Inn. He adds hotels like the one his company is proposing take about five months to build.
