The latest area slated for development is along Valley View Boulevard. A Microtel is going built at an empty plot on land there.
Across from Blair County Convention Center, plans are to build a new, state-of-the are movie theater, along with a 99-room Holiday Inn Express.
Joe Hurd of the Blair County Chamber of Commerce said this area has a strong reputation in the hospitality and retail departments. Hurd continued on to say the two projects are expected to bring in more revenue and jobs to the region.
No official word yet on when ground could be broken on either of those projects.
