A Venice developer is not giving up on his idea to bring a new hotel to Palmetto.  Palmetto City Council shot down Harry Walia's plan to bring a Hyatt Hotel to the area.  But now reports say Walia will submit a revised plan to city council for a smaller hotel in the same location. 

The new plan calls for a two to four story hotel with residential condos on the top floor.  Walia plans to make his request at the next month's planning and zoning meeting.
