The Equine Center is a proposed economic development project. A feasibility study, funded by the Scott County Visitors Commission and the Scott County Redevelopment Committee, will evaluate this project. A possible location is 19 acres of land between the Scott County Fairgrounds and I-65. The Equine Center is proposed to be a for-profit business and would not be supported by taxpayers. If approved and if investors are found, the Equine Center would cost between $7 – 10 million. The Kiwanis members thanked Chris for his presentation and his work in the community!
