CHICO, Calif. - Potential plans for a new hotel in Chico are being met with concern from a senior community that would live across the street from it.
"A four-story hotel does not meet the needs of the senior community," said Pamela Loyd, a woman who lives in Chico.
A proposal for a new hotel in Chico is in the works, but it's being met with resistance from the senior community next door at the sunrise terrace.
The hotel, labeled in the plans as TownePlace Suites by Marriott, will be placed on the northeast corner of Highway 32 and Bruce Road.
The city said the hotel could be 112 rooms, 50 feet tall and 4 stories high.
"I just think it's a real tight area to put a hotel, even if it's lovely to look at or whatever," said Joan Spencer, a woman who lives in Chico.
