Planners approve outdoor seating for hotel

Staff writer
Directly following a presentation by the City of Winters Parking Committee at the Sept. 27 planning commission meeting, the commission held a public hearing and ultimately approved a modification to the downtown hotel project that eliminates three parking spaces on the Railroad Avenue side of the property.
The goal of the modification is to expand outdoor seating for the planned hotel and restaurant on the ground level to create a more open and inviting feel, according to the staff report. Buckhorn owner John Pickerel plans to partner with the hotel to create a new restaurant for the space. . . .
