Hotel plans revised

After going back to the drawing board, the company planning to develop a hotel, restaurant and retail shops at Heritage Square will present revised plans to Town Council during its regular meeting at 5:30 p.m. Monday, May 20.

Provident Real Estate Ventures LLC representatives unveiled a plan in April which included a four-story hotel and removal of two historic buildings on the property in downtown Wickenburg between the Community Center and E. Wickenburg Way. Following two sessions of public comment and some negotiation with the Town, a new plan will be presented Monday.

According to Town Manager Vince Lorefice, the new proposal is for a three-story hotel, not exceeding the current height limit. The Trinidad House – which holds historical significance to several people who spoke during the hearings – will be saved and incorporated into the plan. Provident will also invest in street and parking improvements for the development, Lorefice said. The Town is considering leasing property near the Community Center for parking.

If plans are approved by Council to move forward, the Planning and Zoning Commission will review the site plan and building design before construction can start.

The proposed site plan was not made available by the developer prior to the Sun’s deadline, however Lorefice expected it to be part of the Council packet on the Town’s website this week.
