An indoor/outdoor water park, 400-room hotel and conference center is in the early stages of talks among developers, the county, and economic development council.
County officials recently heard plans for a proposed $130 million indoor/outdoor water park and 400-room resort hotel slated for Talking Rock, a development which could bring hundreds of jobs to the area.
The tourism impact of this development would also completely change the face of Pickens County’s economy. However, the commissioner representing west Pickens said he has already heard serious concerns from his constituents.
