Western Budget Motel is in the beginning stages of developing a motel beside KFC at Ponoka’s south entrance. The development permit was recently approved.

As of July 12 architectural plans hadn’t been designed but according to company president Gary Grant. Western Budget Motel is in the process of meeting with engineers to set the plans drawn.

The land was bought independently from Adams Motors; the same developer also bought the lot beside Adams Motors.

‘We wanted to keep it so we would have ample parking space,” Grant explained.

Grant recently built an apartment building in Ponoka and was approached by the town about the need for a motel. “They’re very friendly, efficient and accommodating.”

“We needed a motel and that was a good location,” said Betty Jurykoski, development officer.

The estimated value of the project is $7 million, and it’s going to be 22,224 square feet in size.

“The town is very pleased we have this development underway,” said Jurykoski.
