Second public information session held on planned Kalahari Resorts
Date published: 12/5/2007
Hornung responded that Kalahari would be just a small factor in the area's traffic volume. He called for a regional solution and noted that a new interchange off Interstate 95 into Celebrate Virginia could help.
Other concerns raised by audience members included:
Celebrate Virginia's promised ecotourism component didn't seem to be occurring.
The resort could generate more police calls.
An effort needs to be made to get Kalahari visitors downtown.
Hornung and Fredericksburg Economic Development Director Kevin Gullette addressed each of those issues.
About 25 percent of Celebrate Virginia has been conserved, and that land will be available to tour. The city has a 2-acre parcel at Celebrate Virginia South to build a fire and police station. And some type of booth in the Kalahari lobby is likely to inform visitors about downtown.Bill Freehling: 540/374-5405
