Beech Fork Lodge Public Meeting
June 11 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
House Bill 3140, which passed during the WV regular session in March 2019, calls for a feasibility study and two public hearings for a possible lodge and conference center at Beech Fork State Park. The Wayne County Economic Development Authority (WCEDA) and Marshall University Center for Business and Economic Research (CBER) will be co-hosting a public meeting prior to the two public hearings that will be hosted by the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources (WV DNR).
The purpose of this meeting will be to:
* Provide an overview of the history of this project
* Present recent developments and complementary projects that will contribute to the success of this effort
* Gather formal and informal support/commitments from local residents, businesses, and organizations to utilize the lodge and conference center if built
* Brainstorm opportunities and identify ways that the community can get involved in making the Beech Fork Lodge and Conference Center a reality
The latter two meetings hosted by the WV DNR will be to 1. focus on possible funding for a lodge and conference center including any public and private partnerships and 2. focus on the feasibility study and any recommendations.
