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.
