Louisville, Ky. (WHAS) – Exactly one month after developer Ed Hart’s original deadline to reach a deal with the state on re-opening Kentucky Kingdom by 2014, there hasn’t been a response from either side.
A spokeswoman for Hart says the Kentucky Kingdom Redevelopment Corporations proposal to the state is still under negotiation.
The proposal states the investors could re-open the theme park by May 2014 if awarded the contract by November 1. But, it also states – “Any delay beyond November 1, 2012 in the state’s decision-making process could delay the KKRC’s planned opening.”
The Kentucky agency involved says state law expressly prohibits public discussion during the review process.
