Tell City sets sights on new hotel

TELL CITY, IN (WFIE) - Tell City's goals for 2015 include adding more bike paths and sidewalks, but also include getting a new hotel in the 7th Street Corridor.

Mayor Barbara Ewing says the hotel has been a goal to continue economic development in that area of the city.

The hotel would be close to the River Pointe Housing Development, a park and several businesses downtown.

Co-owner of the Pour Haus, Derek Cronin, says with the hotel potentially being so close, he's excited for the increase in business.

He says he thinks it will do so much more than extra business for the city.

It's the city's goal to have a developer ready to begin construction by the end of this year.
