The Niagara Falls Planning Board unanimously rejected a site plan for a five-story, 50-room hotel proposed by the owners of the Caravan Motel on Niagara Falls Boulevard in the Falls.
The new hotel was to have been built on adjoining lots on Third and Fourth streets, north of Seneca Niagara Casino. The lots are now occupied by a vacant former dental office and a vacant house, which would have been demolished.
James C. Bragg of the city Planning Department said the department recommended rejection of the project as too large for the available space.
Even though there were to be 50 rooms in the hotel, the plan included only 28 parking spaces. The Third Street lot, where the building was to be placed, measured 57 by 132 feet, and the Fourth Street lot, intended for parking, measured 73 by 132 feet.
