Friday could be moving day for residents hoping to get into the renovated McCurdy Hotel on Evansville’s riverfront.   

The notice on the agreement to let residents move into the McCurdy came in an email from Evansville Fire Department Public Information Officer Dan Grimm Thursday afternoon.

In the note, Grimm wrote that the building commission, the Evansville Fire Department and McCurdy developer The Kunkel Group have reached an agreement to resolve the remaining items on the pre-occupancy inspection checklist.
