Sir, it doesn't matter if only one crime in human history has happened because of a prison in a town. Its about the presence of one. That's enough to ruin tourism there. They rely 100% on campers and area 51 tourists. The a le inn is a motel/rv /campground. The prison, being 4 miles away from that, will drastically kill tourism. Some guy already bought the towns gas station and shut it down, now this.....
Besides, theres miles of empty space away from this small quaint town... why only 4 miles away?
It has been just a month since the prison emptied out, but its loss has taken a toll on new business ventures in Lake County. Without an anchor in the area, a number of projects and renovations have been put on hold, including a new hotel and a manufactured housing community,
