Mayor Lloyd Winnecke made his choice public today for who he wants to develop the new convention hotel facility in downtown Evansville. The Evansville Redevelopment Commission agreed with him with a 5-0 in favor of working with a firm from Branson, Mo.

Mayor Lloyd Winnecke told the redevelopment commission that he and an advisory group assembled to vet the companies felt HCW brought the most to the table.

Winnecke said that the company has experience with projects in cities the size of Evansville and that they have the funded needed for the project.
