Fanning workshopping on Holiday Inn

By Ashley Andresen, Staff Writer

A meeting of the minds transpired in Fanning Springs last Wednesday at a workshop designed to determine next steps in deciding where the access road for the proposed Holiday Inn Express will be located.

The Gilchrist County Board of County Commissioners, Fanning Springs mayor and City Council, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), Joe Mittauer of Mittauer and Associates Engineering, the Florida Department of Agriculture (FDACS), Greenways and Trails, and representatives from both U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho and state Rep. Keith Perry’s offices were present along with concerned citizens and representatives for the hotel developer Azim Saju, managing partner of the Ocala based Hotel Development and Management Group (HDG).

The hotel is to be located behind the trailhead building right off of the Nature Coast State Trail, where the trail meets U.S. Highway 19 on the Gilchrist County side.
