Appalachian Jobs 'n Jeebus Derangement

Creation Museum seeking tax breaks for Ark Encounter theme park

"FRANKFORT - On Wednesday, Gov. Steve Beshear unveiled plans for a new tourist attraction in Grant County that will feature a full-scale replica of Noah’s Ark.
Ark Encounter LLC, a for-profit entity, and Answers in Genesis, the nonprofit ministry that built the Creation Museum in Petersburg, will partner to build the $150 million Ark Encounter on a 160-acre site.

“We are excited to join with the Ark Encounter group as it seeks to provide this family-friendly tourism attraction to the Commonwealth,” Beshear said. “Bringing new jobs to Kentucky is my top priority and with the estimated 900 jobs this project will create, I am happy about the economic impact this project will have on the Northern Kentucky region.”
Beshear was joined by Grant County Judge-executive Darrell Link and representatives from Ark Encounter and Answers in Genesis at a Wednesday morning press conference in Frankfort.

When completed in the Spring of 2014, the attraction is expected to draw 1.6 million visitors per year and create 900 full- and part-time jobs."
