NO BIG HOTEL
IN OUR SMALL TOWN
To everyone who has participated in this effort: THANK YOU for signing the petition, putting up yard signs, emailing the City, showing up and speaking at the City Council meetings! Together, all of our hard work in the past year helped stop the City from choosing a large, corporate hotel for the vacant lot at Bonita and Cataract!
2018: San Dimas has exclusive agreement with developer to build a large, 4-story Fairfield Inn at Bonita/Cataract lot
Fall/Winter 2018: Hundreds of residents join No Big Hotel effort, put up yard signs, email City Council, and sign petition
February-March 2019: City Council hires Consultant to explore other viable business options for the vacant lot, particularly restaurant and food uses, in lieu of or in addition to a hotel
September 2019: With Consultant's help, City receives several new proposals and interviews 3 finalists
December 10, 2019: City Council decides to move forward with the Pioneer Square proposal, instead of the Fairfield Inn!
August 25, 2020: City Council approves Exclusive Negotiating Agreement with Pioneer Square, LLC, giving the team exclusive rights to the property
We believe a development that positively impacts those who live in the immediate area, benefits all city residents, and enriches our historic downtown is possible.
