New Ho­tel in Stanstead

Stanstead Journal - - FROM PAGE ONE - Staff, Sten­stead

If all goes well, the plateau at the cor­ner of Notre-Dame and au­toroute 55 may fi­nally get a ho­tel built on it. So it tran­spired at last Mon­day’s Stanstead monthly meet­ing when in­no­cently a res­o­lu­tion was passed autho­riz­ing the town to ac­cept a con­di­tional of­fer to buy the land par­cel where the site is lo­cated. The of­fer is for $197,000 and is con­di­tional to a 10 page an­nex of the res­o­lu­tion. Not want­ing to dis­rupt the process, this news­pa­per con­ve­niently for­got to ask who was in­volved in the project. What is known is that the con­di­tions are full of the usual ifs and when, in other words, hopes are high and re­sults un­cer­tain.

This project, any­how, has a bet­ter chance of see­ing the light of day than the last one an­nounced years ago: a 12 al­ley gas sta­tion sell­ing its prod­ucts a third higher in price than a cou­ple of hun­dred me­ters away.

Mean­while, the much an­nounced su­per con­ven­tion cen­tre in New­port is off. It was to in­clude a ho­tel on the site of the small shop­ping cen­ter that was to be de­mol­ished.
