A proposal for a 'Boutique Hotel' was presented by the developer to council at a public meeting on July 9. The location is on Boucher Street West, one property back from Sykes Street and, until it was unfortunately destroyed by fire, had been an occupied century home, similar to the homes in the rest of our quiet residential neighbourhood.
Very few details were available other than a rough pencil sketch of the site plan however the developer painted a glowing picture of a six-room 'Boutique' hotel. There would be no on site management but there would be a number to call if there was a problem. This would, of course, be a remote possibility because the rooms would be expensive, $200 to $300 per night on average, and would attract an upscale clientele.
