East Tennessee City Council Gives Initial Approval On Water Park

EAST RIDGE, Tenn. (AP) -- The East Ridge City Council has given initial approval to a planned 12 million dollar water park.

Council member voted unanimously in favor of allowing developers to build Splash Valley on a 14-acre site.

Plans call for a water roller coaster, a huge wave pool that would allow surfing, a 1,000-foot river and a large children's play area.

Partners David Mayes and Shawn Callahan hope to have the park ready to open by summer.

There's a public meeting tomorrow evening at which the council will hear public comment -- then vote for a final time on approval.
