Second crack at hotelJanuary 23, 2017 7:46 pm
Developers of a proposed Marriott hotel at the intersection of highway 97 and 33 will be back before council Monday.
City council turned down the initial proposal in June. That proposal showed the two hotel towers set back on the property, with a mass of parking in front along the highways.
Both staff and council rejected that design.
Other developments along the highway either provide building mass along the road, or some form of mitigation such as trees or other landscaping.
The developer has spent the past seven months redesigning the configuration to come more into line with what council wanted to see.
Planning staff is pleased with what they call a compromise proposal. They are recommending council accept this design and issue a development permit for the project.
