Agree with the connecting the lots in Lakewood. Also, hotels don't seem to be the real need. Population aka tax base is the real need. To get that, jobs are needed. Here are some stats to think about:

Chautauqua County population since 1950. Note that the population in the 2010 census is less than in the 1950 census.

1950 135,189 9.4% 1960 145,377 7.5% 1970 147,305 1.3% 1980 146,925 -0.3% 1990 141,895 -3.4% 2000 139,750 -1.5% 2010 134,905 -3.5%

Good luck Dave and Cecil. The I86 exits are prime real estate for growth of tax base and sales tax. For a metro area of this size along I86, it has been ignored for too many years. The Fairmount shopping area was designed very poorly as it grew. Lets not make the same mistakes by not having interconnecting back roads between new developments as they progress and it will.. Driving in Lakewood is like Dodgems. Plus, unless your from that direct area, its out of the way for many county residents.

Jesús, every time a market-based study is presented to the area, it is nothing more than smoke and mirrors to get an illegitimate business under way. North Main DOES NOT need another quarter-capacity hotel built near the I-86 exit.
