Demolition talk


Duane Hicks

Chief Building Official Travis Rob outlined a preliminary plan for the demolition of the vacant Rainy Lake Hotel during a meeting yesterday at the Civic Centre. The town intends to tender the project soon, with the aim to demolish the building this fall, develop plans for a market square over the winter, and then build it in the spring. Scott Street business owners voiced concerns the demolition—and downtown parking restrictions coinciding with it—could conflict with the Christmas shopping season.
