Project to restore Clovis, NM hotel met with opposition

The plan to turn the historic Hotel Clovis, which has sat shuttered and vacant for nearly 30 years, into affordable housing is facing opposition.

Back in November 2010, a private developer was ready to take on the challenge.

“It helps address the housing needs of the community which are many, certainly with Cannon Air Force Base,” explained Claire Burroughes, Legislative and Community Development Director for the City of Clovis.

In May, Clovis officials passed an affordable housing ordinance which would allow the city to loan the developer up to $1.4 million dollars in grants and loans; one of the final steps needed to get the project off the ground.

“The following week, a group came to the city and asked for a negative referendum on that affordable housing plan ordinance,” said Burroughes.
