REED CITY — A local family is hoping to gain verbal and financial support from Reed City and Richmond Township in their consideration of constructing a hotel at the junction of U.S. 10 and U.S. 131.
Jay Zolman presented his ideas to the Reed City Council members at a May 19 meeting, saying his family has the desire to build a hotel on their 40-acre property, located on 220th Avenue just north of U.S. 10 and east of U.S. 131. They have been in contact with Intercontinental Hotels Group and the company believes a Holiday Inn Express or Marriott may fit the location, which is visible from both highways, he added. Zolman and his family are Reed City residents and have owned Logic Plus in the city for 30 years. The only other major hotel in Osceola County is located on U.S. 10 in Evart.
