A sure sign the economy around Grand Blanc, Flint and Genesee County has improved...is demand for hotel rooms.

Mundy Township has become the spot for hotels given its perfect location off US-23 near I-75 and just down the road from I-475.

On the western edge of the available property is a residential area that spans to Torrey Road.

Residents voiced some concerns.

People living behind, what would become the hotel property, expressed the area wouldn't feel residential any longer, safety concerns and privacy, while WNEM was there.

If approved, the new hotel would be four stories with approximately 100 rooms. Considering the tree line along the residential edge of the property, they may not have anything to worry about.

A short-lived Six Flags theme park, AutoWorld was supposed to be a tourist destination in Flint. Sadly, after several starts and stops, AutoWorld was imploded in early 1997. The land is now owned by University of Michigan-Flint and is home to the William S White Building.
