Kentucky Kingdom Tourism Incentives Approved
By AP
LOUISVILLE, KY - Kentucky Kingdom has won approval for performance-based tourism incentives, which could amount to as much as $10 million over 10 years.

The Louisville amusement park closed in 2009, and developers plan to reopen it next year.

The Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet said in a statement that the Kentucky Tourism Development Finance Authority approved the application for the incentives Wednesday after hearing a report from Hunden Strategic Partners.

The Kentucky State Fair Board owns the property where the park is located and has approved a lease agreement for the project.

The cabinet says eligible tourism attractions are allowed a sales tax rebate of as much as 25 percent of project capital costs over a 10-year period if they meet economic impact criteria.
