St. Clair County, Michigan (PRWEB) June 4, 2009
St. Clair County, Michigan is looking for a few developers or individual investors to open an Indoor Waterpark in their beautiful waterfront community. St. Clair County, Michigan offers strong demographics in the 180 mile radius ring crucial to the success of these type of projects. In fact, our population is almost equal to that in markets such as Sandusky, Ohio or Wisconsin Dells which both currently operate successful Indoor Waterparks.
We realize that bringing a substantial Indoor Waterpark (50,000 square feet or more) can turn St. Clair County into a year round tourist destination, and we're ready to do whatever it takes to help make that happen. We also realize that we have the perfect climate, logistics and demographics to support an Indoor Waterpark. Inentives including a possible "Tourism MEGA" may be available to assist with reducing development costs and increasing your ROI.
Why should you consider building your Indoor Waterpark in St. Clair County, Michigan?
- We're situated on the Canadian border with quick access to and from Ontario, Canada. Our International bridge crossing leads to expressways in both U.S./Canada--within minutes you can be on either side of the border! Tap into the U.S. and Canadian market by drawing hotel stays from both sides of the Blue Water Bridge.
- St. Clair County is located in the northeast portion of the Detroit Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). The Detroit MSA is the largest metro area in the state of Michigan and the 11th largest nationwide.
- Just one hour from the Detroit Metropolitan market, families & tourists can enjoy "hassle free traffic" and small town charm in our relaxing community while still taking a quick trek to professional sporting events, theatres, casino's, the Detroit Regional Zoo, Museums, Science Centers and more.
- We have both blue collar and white collar families within 180 mile radius--appealing to budgets and desired family vacation experiences for a wide variety of household demographics.
- Location, location, location. We have potential "project perfect" sites. Affordable land with direct Interstate access, near exit ramps, and minutes from Canadian border crossing. Far less expensive to build than in a Metro market, but still drawing park attendance from nearby Metropolitan area(s).
In St. Clair County, Michigan and surrounding communities also, families have a very short window to enjoy outdoor recreational opportunites. Put simply, our summers are very short and our winters are very long. So for several months of the year, families find themseleves experiencing "cabin fever" and desperate for a warm-weather escape; which explains why in a struggling economy, you still find waterpark resorts like Kalahari in Sandusky, Ohio, filled during school vacations such as Spring break. Many families are taking shorter vacations and traveling closer to home, so Indoor Waterparks are an "easy to please" vacation for the whole family. Amenities offered are not only enjoyed by toddlers, tweens, and teens, but even by Mom & Dad. Waterparks provide an easy & affordable way to entertain an entire family with children of all ages in a one-stop destination.
The Economic Development Alliance of St. Clair County is anxious to assist you in a site analysis and expediting approvals needed to get construction of your Indoor Waterpark underway. We are ready, willing and able to help coordinate essential resources, project needs, equipment, workforce, and possible incentives and financial packaging.
If you are a developer or private investor who has been considering opening an Indoor Waterpark in the near future, we hope you will take a good look at St. Clair County, Michigan as a possible fit for your waterpark resort.
