CONVENTION HOTEL PROJECT MOVES FORWARD
"Today was another productive meeting to move the convention center hotel project forward.
Through the re-bidding process, Hunt Construction has been selected to build the new Doubletree convention center hotel in Evansville.
With selection of Hunt Construction, the city and developer will now finalize documents, secure private equity and make necessary arrangements to work towards a closing date."
