Grants and Contracts Details


The University of Kentucky Center for Business and EconOmic Research has been asked to perform an update of the feasibility study conducted in 2001 concerning the addition of a state park and lodge at Herrington Lake located in Boyle, Garrard.. and Mercer counties. Herrington Lake is already a popular destination for residents of Central K£rrtuclcy. The addition of the proposed facilities at Herrington Lake would require the pun:hase of land in a suitable spot. In keeping ",ith the nature of lodges at existing Kentucky State Parks, the lodge at Herrington Lake would most likely include ample room for overnight stays as well as a fuJI-service dining rOOmand meeting facilities among other amenitieS. In addition to the jobs and income created due to construction of the park and lodge, the new facilities would bring a future economk impact to the lake area as well as the surrounding area.
