TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas officials are extending the deadline for developers to submit bids for the proposed construction of a resort at Clinton Lake near Lawrence.
The Department of Administration said Tuesday that proposals will be accepted through July 26 for the project.
A consultant prepared a study for the Kansas Department of Commerce for a 175-room resort that would include a conference center and other amenities. The study did not specify a site but suggested a location near an existing marina on the northeast side of the lake, which is operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
The study noted that a sports complex being built by the University of Kansas and the city of Lawrence could bring more visitors to the area.
