Kentucky is soliciting proposals from companies interested in building and operating a lodging facility at General Burnside Island State Park on Lake Cumberland near Somerset.

Parks Commissioner Elaine Walker told The Commonwealth Journal conditions are right at the park for such a facility.

Burnside Mayor Ron Jones called the idea "a godsend for the community."

Dudley Webb, chair of the board and founder of The Webb Companies, Lexington, and Mike Czerwonka, president of Czerwonka & Associates, Louisville, both say are still interested in General Burnside Island State Park.

The Webb Companies' currently most visible project is CentrePointe in Lexington and his company has developed several marines on Lake Cumberland and one on Dale Hollow Lake. Czerwonka has tie-ins with numerous hotel chains in the South.
