Sue Siens, city liaison, said the meeting would allow Lebanon and Wilson County officials the “opportunity to meet with them and further explain why we believe we’re the best location.”

Terri Sterling, a media relations consultant from Murfreesboro who is working with the developers of Bible Park U.S.A., told The Wilson Post in June that it will not be a theme park like Six Flags or Disneyworld but would be a “themed attraction based on the history of the Bible and well-loved Bible stories.” The park would be non-denominational.

At least three sites in Wilson have been mentioned as possible locations for the Bible Park. They include property on the north side of Interstate 40 at the end of Tater Peeler Road, property across from the Home Depot on South Hartmann Drive and property in an area between I-40 and Leeville Pike near State Route 840.

Sterling told The Post in June that the park would cost $150 million to $200 million to construct, would attract 1.25 million visitors in year one and as many as 1.5 million by year five and would employ 250 full time and professional workers and about 1,200 seasonal workers.
