1 developer submits proposal for Kan. lake resort

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Just one developer has submitted a proposal for building a resort at Clinton Lake near Lawrence.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the sole proposal submitted to the state by Friday’s deadline came from Overland Park-based LodgeWell Resorts. Kansas Department of Administration director of operations Chuck Knapp says it “just takes one good proposal.”

Several development firms had attended a pre-proposal meeting for the project earlier this month. At the meeting, officials shared the results of a feasibility study. It found support for a 175-room hotel, about 15,000 square feet of conference space, three restaurants and an outdoor sports center that would include everything from hiking to water sports.

The next step is to review the project. Knapp says officials hope to make an announcement this fall.
