Lake Hallie approves plans for four-story hotel

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW) - Travelers could soon have another place to stay in the Chippewa Valley.

Last night, the Lake Hallie Village Board approved the site plan for a four-story hotel west of the 53 bypass. No decision has been made about whether the hotel would be part of a national chain. There would be a fitness center, a pool and more space for future development.  A board member says there is a need in Lake Hallie for more lodging.

"Particularly in the summertime we have a lot of north-south traffic, and east-west too with tourism and people that are on vacation or traveling. Businesspeople, people coming to the area from Minneapolis or Green Bay having business in Eau Claire will be staying there," said Mark Perry, a Lake Hallie Village Board member.

Board members expect construction to start this spring.
