St. Marys City Councilman Greg Gebauer voiced his strong dissent for any downtown hotel project involving developer Robert Yoder of The Yoder Group and Impact Pennsylvania, Inc at Monday's city council meeting.
The city is currently involved in a contract, with Yoder named as the primary developer for the redevelopment area of downtown St. Marys, primarily along Erie Avenue and Depot Street. The contract is open-ended until Yoder develops the final property, located at the end of Depot Street, which includes plans to construct a hotel. Yoder has also expressed interest in developing property near the proposed hotel, in which he has stated a restaurant may be built.
