Negotiations to begin for water park and hotel at Ford Park

Posted:

Jefferson County commissioners have voted to begin negotiating with two developers on building a water park and hotel at Ford Park. But before it's a done deal, county officials say the city of Beaumont must be on board.

That's because as a bonus to bring the projects to Ford Park, the county wants to give the hotel a break when it comes to paying hotel occupancy taxes, and the city collects three times the amount Jefferson County does.

The hotel will be built by Pate Development out of Wichita, Kansas.

The water park will be built by Chuck Hendrix, who's built water parks and amusement parks around the world.
