Dalton studying new hotel, water park

Posted: Updated:

DALTON, GA (Times Free Press) -- A feasibility study in Dalton, Ga., will explore the potential tourism benefits of renovating the Northwest Georgia Trade and Convention Center, building a hotel next door to it and constructing a destination-size water park.

Dalton Area Convention and Visitors Bureau executive director Brett Huske says the study is the first step in "a long process" for any one of the project ideas.

The study -- being performed by Key Advisors in Atlanta for $25,000 split among the bureau, the Dalton-Whitfield Chamber of Commerce and the Joint Development Authority -- is now in its third week, and is expected to take another nine weeks or so, Huske said Friday.

He said the three ideas are ventures he's been mulling as he looked for ways to boost tourism activity in Whitfield County and Dalton over the last three years.
