Construction funds for the Kentucky Horse Park.

Posted in Legislation at 9:24 pm by Administrator

House Bill 380 (Kentucky State Budget FY 2007 – FY 2008) finally passed out of the House and to the Senate on March 8th, 2006 and referred to the Senate Appropriations and Revenue Committee on March 10, 2006.
Included in the budget are the funds for construction at the Kentucky Horse Park.  $42,680,000 for the construction of the New Indoor Arena.  $27,500,000 for the construction of the Hotel/Conference Center.  $1,000,000 was reauthorized for the construction of a Permanent Seating Stadium Jump Area.
Of course until the budget passes the Horse Park Commission will not finalize the plans for these facilities and we have seen no mention when RFPs will be posted.
