General Burnside Park Lodge Plans


Kentucky’s parks commissioner says the department would like to build a lodge at General Burnside State Park near Somerset. However, Elaine Walker says there’s a problem…The state can’t afford to do so.

Walker says that doesn’t mean the idea is dead. She’s pursuing the chance of a public-private partnership to make it happen…

Walker says a request for proposals is now being developed and it may include operation of the golf course. She says that kind of arrangement wouldn’t be sought unless it included protections for the jobs of affected workers.
