Historic Red Cedar Inn

The City purch20180719_073709ased this building in late 2017, and intends to develop it as a new Welcome Center / Museum. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a recognized Route 66 landmark.

The City in July, 2018 issued a Request for Qualifications for architectural / planning services to help assess the building condition and make recommendations for necessary improvements. A committee was formed to review the submittals and after interviews with four firms the committee selected Patterhn-Ives LLC for the project. The Patterhn-Ives submittal for the Red Cedar project can be found here.

The Board of Aldermen in November 2018 accepted an agreement with Patterhn-Ives for the initial "Phase 1" planning and programming. The first draft of the Phase 1 Conceptual Plan has been completed and can be found here.

More information on this project will be posted as the work progresses.
