City Council approved the rezoning request and the concept plan for 2.4 acres of vacant land that sits on the west side of Esquire Drive, north of the intersection with Lakeview Drive.
City leaders have stipulated that the hotel should have no apparent rear; dumpsters should be enclosed on three sides with material matching the main building; and any building must be set back at least 50 feet from western property line and 40 feet from the eastern side, according to a city staff report.
A Holiday Inn Express is a hotel chain under the InterContinental Hotels Group that focuses on providing limited services at a mid-priced hotel rate.
