FRANKFORT, Ky. -- The Kentucky Tourism Development Finance Authority has approved incentives for Bluegrass Boardwalk to open in Louisville.
After hearing a presentation from their consultant, the Authority unanimously approved the 3.9 million dollar incentive package. Kentucky Tourism Secretary Marcheta Sparrow says the impact of the park on tourism will be tremendous, and a great addition for the state's largest city.
Bluegrass Boardwalk co-owner Mike Kamp says they are pleased by the Authority's action, and their next step is to go to the State Fair Board at their June or July meeting, to get an extension for the opening to 2014.
The park was last open as Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom in 2009.
