The Lawrence city manager's office says the state has scrapped plans for a resort at Clinton Lake State Park.
City Manager David Corliss told The Lawrence Journal-World that state officials have notified the city that the only bid for a resort at Clinton Lake State Park is no longer being considered. A letter from state officials says the project wasn't financially feasible for the state.
The prospects for the Clinton Lake resort appeared dim earlier when the state received only one proposal.
Officials with the Kansas Department of Wildlife Parks & Tourism had hoped a 175-room hotel, resort and conference facility could be built at the state park.
