Meetings to focus on lake development

August 2, 2006


State leaders will conduct public meetings on the potential of developing areas around Clinton and Perry lakes.

The meeting concerning Perry Lake will be at 3 p.m. Aug. 15 at American Legion Post No. 225 at 10114 Old Town Road in Ozawkie.

The meeting concerning Clinton Lake will be at 1:30 p.m. Aug. 16 at Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vt.

The meetings were called by the Kansas Water Office and Kansas Department of Commerce to focus on a marketplace study released in June.

The study said the Clinton Lake area would be a good place to feature a hotel, resort spa and golf course, while the Perry Lake area could support a spa and more homes.

For more information or special accommodations at the meeting sites, contact Ken Grotewiel at the Kansas Water Office at (785) 296-0868 or toll-free at (888) 526-9283.

What about Lone Star Lake? It could use some work- like maybe having an operating marina?

Actually we do need more homes anywhere in Lawrence if you want existing prices to decline or if we want to increased the size of the tax base.
