A proposal to connect a new 80- to 90-room hotel to the Green Mill restaurant has received a positive recommendation from the Greater Bemidji Area Joint Planning Commission.


Rich Siegert, representing the Edgewater Group, has proposed that the new hotel would have six floors and be 100 feet from Lake Bemidji.

The JPC, which first considered the request in April, voted 6-3 Thursday to recommend approval. The Joint Planning Board will consider final approval late this month.
