Plans To Knock Down Former Hotel Accelerating

The wheels are being put in motion on a plan that could see the former Rainy Lake Hotel in Fort Frances come toppling down as early as this summer.

An application to the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund is being put together by the town and the Rainy River Future Development Corporation for funding to help develop a market square on the Scott Street location.

Consultant Tannis Drysdale says recent discussion with the province is giving them some hope of the application gaining approval this year.

Drysdale says the fine details are to be work out, but the project could include a new building that might be a new home to the local Farmer's Market.
