The site is now clear in La Crescent. It was the site of the American Legion along Highway 61. Now, initial work will soon begin on a hotel for that site. Following that, an event center.
You can see images of the event center and hotel by visiting www.lacrescentareaeventcenter.org.
La Crescent City Administrator Bill Waller says permits for initial work on the hotel have been filed. Wieser Brothers project manager Andy Towner confirmed that and says work on the hotel is ready to begin, but he's not naming that hotel.
The hotel is expected to include 53 to 60 rooms with an indoor pool, fitness and business centers and an outdoor patio.
The multi-use event center is planned for 15,000 square feet with space for the American Legion. The City approved a tax incremental finance district for the project in December, 2017.
