Potential plans for a new hotel in chico are being met with concern from a senior community that would live across the street from it.

Action news now reporter laura eng went to the neighborhood to hear people's concerns.

Pamela: a four story hotel does not meet the needs of the senior community.

A proposal for a new hotel in chico is in the works, but it's being met with resistance from the senior community next door at the sunrise terrace.

This monstrous hotel just doesn't seem appropriate in that location.

The hotel, labeled in the plans as towne- place suites by marriot, will placed on the northeast corner of highway 32 and bruce road.

The city said an architectural review and use permit is being submitted for approval.

Laura: this is how the plan could look right now for the hotel.

The city said the hotel could be 112 rooms, 50 feet tall and 4 stories high.

Joan spencer says she's concerned about street parking becoming an issue.

Joan: i just think it's a real tight area to put a hotel, even if it's lovely to look at or whatever.

The hotel would be placed near several other major developments in the works too, spencer says.

Meriam park is building up there too so that traffic, it's just a big traffic thing going on right now.

This is a senior community, but that's not going to be a hotel that's going to be seniors only can stay there.

So you're gonna have families you're gonna have kids, and it just changes what is supposed to have been reserved for a senior community.

The city planning commission also recently approved an arco gas station on the south east corner of bruce and highway 32.
