The Lawrence County Fiscal Court has officially applied for a $5,000,000 AML Grant which would be for the construction of a full-service lodge near the Eagle Ridge Golf Course at Yatesville Lake park.
This will be a partnership with Yatesville Lake LLC.
The Lodge will consist of 40 rooms, restaurant, dining area, guest laundry room, fitness center, gift shop, game room, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, hot tub, banquet hall, conference room and a walking trail.
These amenities are of great need for Lawrence County and surrounding communities.
“A Lodge will give a huge economic boost to our county and area. Not only will our citizens enjoy the use of the Lodge but it will bring visitors to our county from other states as well as attracting new businesses,” Deputy Lawrence County Judge Executive Vince Doty said today.
Lawrence County is supported in the effort by being a coal affected county thus being eligible for the Abandoned Mines Lands grant.
