Officials in Pulaski County remain hopeful of landing a hotel. Wisconsin-based Cobblestone Development is looking for local investors to help construct a 44-bed, businesses friendly hotel comparable to a Holiday Inn or Hampton Inn.
Pulaski County Economic Development Director Nathan P. Origer says a number of properties in Winamac remain under consideration. Right now the biggest holdup is the lack of local investors willing to finance the project. Origer says changes in Indiana law in favor of crowdfunding may create an alternative smaller-contribution option for the project for those unable to invest at equity levels.
