Now that the Nevele Hotel seems to be in ruins. Does any one have any idea what the plans are? From what I've heard the place is going to be taken down. Honestly, clearing all the buildings away would be good. It really doesn't pay to rebuild it. That was already tried. I hope it doesn't turn into a tax free organization because that will not produce income. The town/village/city? of Ellenville really needs something to keep them going. Tax free or exempt organizations will not work.

First, the Nevele is outside the Village boundaries, so, other than water revenues, there is no direct gain from property tax. Also, for years, the hotel tried to keep money from sales inside the hotel, not driving business traffic into the village (some local businesses did provide goods and services to the hotel, for indirect benefit).

For that reason, a non-profit entity COULD bring the same benefits to the Village (water/sewer revenue, purchase of local goods/services), and might even not be so stingy about folks going into the village to buy things or eat out.

Some ideas have included turning the hotel into a college or institute; one person suggested making it a trade school for construction and repair skills, while another suggested an art gallery and art school. These would have been viable ideas if the money and time were right, like twenty years ago. But now, neither schools nor travel are doing well, and won't likely again.
