gets the aid of the tourism bureauThis Monday, most probably a critical vote for the prospect of Waterloo is anticipated to reach before the City Council. After that the council will talk about closing plans of the sale proposal of the Five Sullivan Brothers Convention Center based in downtown Waterloo.


At present, the council is interested to put up for sale the property to a developer Leslie Hospitality located in Omaha. Also, the developer would be buying the Ramada Inn spending millions of dollars in overhaul.


The well-known Five Sullivan Brothers Convention generally remains the first choice for everyone coming to the city of Waterloo, along with what the city has to offer.


Nevertheless, at the moment, Executive Director of the Waterloo Convention and Visitors Bureau Aaron Buzza says it’s not doing proper justice to the city either.


“It can’t be lipstick on a pig and we’ve been pushing that for years,” said Buzza. “As well-flooring, lighting, paint on the walls, all of those things.”


The Waterloo Convention and Visitors Bureau are keen to see the new wave of changes sale would bring. They consider that this will go with the much-needed face-lift the city of Waterloo received in the couple of years back.


A lot of people say that the convention center and Ramada Inn are an eyesore in comparison to the new look the city has been working towards. “Especially as we’ve seen businesses now popping up-the SingleSpeed, the Basal’s pizza, everything on Fourth street-that’s what visitors are interested in,” said Buzza.
