Watertown's newest rebuke to the notion we are in recession came today as a $12 million dollar Hilton Garden Inn and conference center began to come to fruition with a groundbreaking at the Western Boulevard location. Developer Patrick Donegan was joined by an election year cavalcade of dignitaries.
From the city perspective we are pleased at Mr. Donegan's continued investment and in particular the 350 person conference center in the hotel. That will be a big plus.
The city is also moving ahead with improvements to the neighborhood sewer collection system and that will allow further development near the hotel.
