Category:  2015 Success Stories

With sponsorship by the City of Rawlins and grant writing assistance by Carbon County Economic Development Corporation, the City was awarded a BRC Community Readiness Grant for $468,000. It was used to construct a new roadway with curb and gutter, water lines, lighting, fire hydrants and landscaping to connect Airport Road to the Comfort Inn entrance off of Cedar Street on the east entrance to Rawlins for Rawlins Hotel, LLC, owners of a new three story, $7.4 million, 77- room Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott. This roadway also provided access to other landlocked properties so they can become available for future development as well.

The roadway is now complete and the Fairfield Inn and Suites open. The same developers are planning a Candlewood Suites on another parcel behind the Fairfield Inn. Construction of that hotel will begin in late spring of 2016.
