Belmont Resident Vents Over New Development Planned For Starr Hill

A Belmont resident is upset about the looming closure of six small businesses near the Lewis and Clark statue. Brian Wimer wants City Hall (pictured) to know he’s fighting plans for a new Courtyard by Marriott in the Starr Hill neighborhood. Wimer says Random Row Books has done a lot for the 300-block of West Main Street. Several City Councilors have told Wimer they share his support for Random Row Books, but they note it’s private property.
