The city of Nashville and Brown County have lost tourism dollars in recent years after the Little Nashville Opry burned down. The old Ski World site has been vacant for years now.

Plans will be unveiled this evening for a new project in Brown County that will occupy the site of the old ‘Ski World’ property on State Road 46, between Nashville and Bloomington.

Local architect Burt Perdue will present his plan for the site, which he says will be an ‘environmentally sustainable’ facility with its own waste water treatment plant.

Perdue says the project will raise the water quality of Schooner Creek, which runs through the property.

However, Perdue is keeping quite on details of the new project until this evening.

Aaccording to Brian Neilson of GAI Consultants. GAI will be responsible for creating the innovative storm water and waste water facilities. Neilson says the new recreation facility will bring economic growth to a region which has lost tourism dollars in recent years. He says the facility will be only the second of its kind in the nation.

Tonight’s meeting is at 6:00 in the Brown County High School Auditorium.
