DAWSONVILLE, GA (AP) - The owner of a clothing-optional resort in the Atlanta metro area wants to keep guests warm in the winter.

The Paradise Valley Resort & Club in Dawson County is planning an expansion in the coming months.

Owner Jeff Wasserman tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://on-ajc.com/2eTU2OS) he's received approval from the Dawson County commissioners to build an indoor facility.

Wasserman says he'll add a pool and gymnasium that guests can use during winter months.

Wasserman, who has owned the 114-acre getaway development since 2009, said he hopes the cold-weather addition will be ready in 18 months.

He says people can be nude in the water, even though it's cold outside.
