(WICHITA, Kan.) — The Wichita City Council is expected to vote today on whether to approve tax incentives for a new downtown hotel.
Developers want $7.5 million dollars in public funding. The proposed project is $21 million and would go in at Douglas and Broadway.
It would be built inside an old bank from the 1920's that once housed the famed Dockum Drug store.
In return for the hotel, developers want the city to spend the $7.5 million on land acquisition, a parking garage and an urban park.
