Calvert works to annex Kentucky Dam Village

BY DAVID ZOELLER dzoeller@paducahsun.com

CALVERT CITY - The city's effort to annex Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park is continuing, according to Mayor Lynn Jones.

The city awaits a letter from an attorney for the state and a legal description of the property, Jones said, and a first reading of an annexation ordinance could be ready for the April 7 City Council meeting. Adoption would follow approval on a second reading of the ordinance.

"I expect a unanimous vote by the council," Jones said. "They've all spoken in favor of it."

Annexation would enhance the city's ability to promote itself as the home of the state park and as a "safe, friendly community" with recreational and tourism opportunities, the mayor said. "This is a win-win for us. We know we can help the park, and the park can help us. We can grow together," Jones said.

One way annexation can help the park is through potential liquor sales at its restaurant, said Gil Lawson, a spokesman for the Kentucky Department of Parks.

"Calvert City does permit liquor sales, and if we became part of the city we would be interested in pursuing that at Kentucky Dam Village," Lawson said. "It would help us attract more guests, business meetings and other functions like that."

In addition to the restaurant/lodge, the park has a conference center, campground, cottages and a golf course. It also has seasonal activities like nature programs, special events such as arts and craft fairs, and an eagle watch weekend.
