Major Resort Proposed for Perry Co.

A MetroEast development company is looking at Perry County for a new $100 million Branson-like tourist development.

Details are sketchy, but the proposal would call for using part of Pyramid State Park and involve a land swap between the developers and the Department of Natural Resources.

State Rep. Dan Reitz (D-Steeleville) has introduced legislation allowing DNR to authorize the swap if they found it acceptable.

The Associated Press has the latest.

All the Branson attractions certainly does help with tourism.
