LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A proposal to build a resort at Clinton Lake State Park drew little interest from developers.

State officials said only one developer submitted a proposal by Friday’s deadline. Overland Park-based LodgeWell Resorts submitted the proposal to build a 175-room hotel, resort and conference facility at the park near Lawrence. Details of LodgeWell’s proposal were not released.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/1c5TpeR ) several development firms attended a pre-proposal meeting for the project earlier this month.

At the meeting, state officials said a study found support for the resort, which would include outdoor sports center with everything from hiking to water sports.

Chuck Knapp, director of operations for the Kansas Department of Administration, says a state committee will review the project proposal.

Knapp said officials hope to make an announcement this fall.
