Leaders of the Eastern Band of Cherokee
in North Carolina presented plans for a $93 million water park.
Treasurer Corey Blankenship said the facility will draw people to the reservation year-round.
“We are looking at an age range of 7 months to 70,” he said at a public meeting last week, The Smoky Mountain News reported.
The facility would include a 302-room hotel, restaurants, retail shops and an arcade, in addition to the water attractions. About 300 permanent jobs would be created.
