By: Heartland News
PINCKNEYVILL, Ill. - Developers hoping to bring a Branson-style resort to Perry County, Illinois call it a win-win situation for both the environment and the economy.
Geri Boyer, a consultant for the Toney Watkins Company, tells Heartland News they are in talks with local environmental groups as they offer the state a land swap involving pyramid state park.
The company is buying 5500 acres of land near the park, most of which is owned by Knight Hawk Coal Company.
