St. Marys City Manager Dave Greene provided his manager's report during Monday evening's City Council meeting, stating that on Jan. 11 he met with developer Bob Yoder and North Central Pennsylvania Regional Planning and Development Commission (NCPRPDC) representatives Bob Imhof and Dave Puncheon to discuss the city's downtown hotel project.
Greene reported that a grant for $3 million has been signed and approved by officials in Harrisburg and the money is available to be released as soon as the other $5.5 million in funding becomes available.

Come on....a Hotel, do you mean our higher ups in this community think we need a hotel in the downtown??? Is this just a way to "justify " the parking garage. How about monies being put into our local retails segment on the highway (rt. 255). We have more open retail buildings than ever, yet no interest in helping renovate or help develope this dying segment. If there is no reason to come to this area ...why have a hotel. Sure I see no problem redeveloping the downtown (heart) of St. Marys, but with out a strong system feeding this ALL will eventually die !!!
