Jordan block hotel, extra downtown bridge could be put in plan
Ottawa, Ill. -- One plan for a Jordan block hotel died about 12 years ago when it failed to draw enough investors. But the idea of putting a hotel there hasn’t totally gone away. The vision for it could get new life in Ottawa’s updated comprehensive plan.
     The Ottawa Plan Commission and representatives of the planning and design firm hired to help update the plan talked about that Monday night. They also talked about moving Woodward Memorial Dr. south of where it is now, adding another downtown area bridge, and making room for more parking.
     None of these things would be rushed. It’s highly likely the city will update the plan in another decade without all of the most popular ideas being brought to fruition yet.
