Kentucky Dam Village Annexation Moves Forward
Calvert City awaits legal paperwork to continue the annexation process of Kentucky Dam Village, but Lynn Jones, Mayor of Calvert City fully expects the ordinance to be read at the next City Council meeting April 7. Calvert City’s wet status would allow Kentucky Dam Village businesses to pursue liquor licenses, a decision
Mayor Jones says could attract more conventions to the site. The ordinance is expected to pass uncontested, so annexation could take place by mid-April.
Jones points out that Kentucky Dam Village annexation is a piece of a larger plan to redefine Calvert City, offering a large recreational component to promote along with a safe, family-friendly environment. The plan includes improvements to the Kentucky Dam State Park Airport, making Calvert City a transportation hub by air, road, and water, further increasing the area’s attractiveness to convention planners.
