Winamac Town Board Gets Update on Hotel Development


The Winamac Town Board did get a draft report on a comprehensive marketing plan for a hotel in Winamac.

Town Manager Jim Conner said the study was done by Hospitality Marketers, Inc.

“They were down here about the first week of August and met with some of the local and some of the other things that bring in people here. According to the study, they think that a 40-unit hotel would go here in Winamac. We’ll see how we need to proceed with that and help that happen,” explained Conner.

John F. Siebert with Wisconsin-based Cobblestone Development first appeared before the Winamac Town Board in February to discuss plans to develop a 44-room hotel in Winamac. Seibert noted that there are business professionals that frequent Pulaski County’s industrial community and need lodging which makes this a perfect move for the company.
