The sign is up and the shovels are on standby for the construction of the downtown convention hotel.
"I think the placement of the sign today says, 'Hey, this project really is happening. The funding has all been approved, things are starting to happen. We'll set a groundbreaking date in the relatively near future. We think it can happen in the month of December, but in the meantime, this sign says this project is happening. I look at is as a an early Christmas present to the city," Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke said.
The Redevelopment Commission hired both a financial advisor and a city representative to oversee the construction project. Those individuals will submit reports to the city throughout the project.
