Town lands funding to tear down hotel, build market square

The vacant Rainy Lake Hotel will be demolished and redeveloped into a market square in the future thanks to $997,500 from the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corp. (NOHFC).
Mayor Roy Avis learned of the good news this afternoon after meeting with Northern Development and Mines minister Michael Gravelle during the 2014 Association of Municipalities Ontario (AMO) conference in London, Ont.

The town is waiting to hear back from FedNor regarding more funding for the project.
The project is expected to cost nearly $2 million.
