The developers of a proposed Bible Park that was turned down in neighboring Rutherford County are now looking at Lebanon as a venue for what has been described as a $150-$300 million educational and non-evangelical theme park that likely will employ 200 to 300 fulltime employees and 500 to 1,000 seasonal workers.
Developers of the park have said that the attraction should lure 800,000 to 1 million visitors annually.
Lebanon Mayor Don Fox confirmed Tuesday that he and members of his staff have had what he described as "serious" conversations with representatives of SafeHarbor Holdings LLC of New York City about locating Bible Park U.S.A. in Lebanon.
Fox would not discuss any specifics concerning the matter but did say the theme park’s developers had talked with him and others at City Hall about bringing the development to Lebanon.
