Future of Rochester American Legion building up for discussion

Posted:
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -

Plans to demolish the current Rochester American Legion to build a multi-story hotel will likely move forward at the city's Planning and Zoning Commission Meeting on Wednesday.

In April, developers hosted a public meeting at the Legion to answer questions about this "Civic on First" project. Their plan is to build a 9-story hotel, which would include 175 rooms and nearly 100 parking spaces as part of a parking garage.

Developers also promised the Legion would get a spot in the new hotel to call their own.

On Wednesday, a public hearing will decide whether or not to approve a conditional use permit for the preliminary plan.

    Hundreds gather at 160-year-old pioneer church in Lenora for Christmas service

    If you visit Lenora United Methodist Church you'll see a Christmas service the way Laura Ingalls Wilder would have. The church was built in 1856, making it the first church in Fillmore county. Hundreds come out every year to enjoy the festivities the old fashioned way: with a wood stove, oil lamps, and pump organ.
