Walker County residents and others interested in learning more about the proposed Canyon Ridge Resort development on Lookout Mountain are invited to attend a town hall meeting on this unique tourism opportunity.
Town hall meetings will take place on Monday, June 5th at 6:00 p.m. and again on Wednesday, June 7th at 6:00 p.m. at the Walker County Civic Center, 10052 North Highway 27 in Rock Spring.
The program for both evenings will be the same and includes a presentation on the $106 million tourism development. Representatives from Scenic Land Company will be joined by Walker County Sole Commissioner Shannon Whitfield and Walker County Development Authority Chair Robert Wardlaw to answer questions about this economic growth opportunity for one of the county’s most scenic locations.
Canyon Ridge Resort plans to employ a minimum of 180 full-time workers with benefits when it opens in late 2019. The development is estimated to generate over $1 million in new tax revenue for Walker County.
