A long night, but no final decision on Nanaimo’s Conference Centre hotel project

Three hours of debate Monday night, and still no decision on whether Nanaimo City Council will extend an agreement with the company that’s supposed to be building a Conference Centre hotel.

SSS Manhao was asking for a one-year extension, but Council rejected that in a 5-4 vote.

Councillor Gord Fuller says they’re now looking at the possibility of a shorter extension – to November 30th, 2015.

The right of first refusal would be around operation of the Conference Centre itself,  and the $100,000 in park improvements would go to Piper Park.

Councillor Jerry Hong says he hopes that spurs SSS Manhao to get going on the project.

The company’s lawyer says despite delays, they’re fully committed to the project, having already spent $5 million dollars on it.
