Neighbors of Lincoln Inn Employ Visual Aids in Fight against Hotel

Instead of simply objecting to a three-story hotel, neighbors of the Lincoln Inn showed two Batavia aldermen what a hotel would do to their neighborhood.

The group pointed to a pink helium-filled balloon flying 54 feet in the air to show aldermen Mary McCarter and Linnea Miller the height of the proposed hotel. They walked the land to show the aldermen the parking lot would be just a few feet from their property.

"Our goal is to give (them) a visual," said resident Al Sievers.

The group invited all seven members of the city council's community development committee to the meeting. McCarter and Miller, however, were the only two to attend.

Miller said she originally planned to stay home but later changed her mind. The meeting, however, did not change her stance on supporting the concept of a hotel addition to the restaurant and banquet hall off Route 31.

"This is great information that they've given us," Miller said. "I can't say right now that it's changed my mind, but it gives me food for thought."

McCarter said she still supports the hotel but plans to take residents' comments into consideration when reviewing any hotel proposals.
