Proposed canopy tours causing controversy

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A plan to provide canopy tours in the southeastern part of Fayette County is turning into a controversy.

Businessman Burgess Carey says he got a permit a decade ago to build private outdoor fishing and recreation amenities in the Boone Creek area and he has recently moved forward with plans to create canopy tours to go along with a fishing club. The tours would consist of using short zip lines to travel between wooden platforms built up in trees.

However, nearby residents have complained about the plans for the area and city officials have asked Carey to stop construction while they investigate.

Carey told the Lexington Herald-Leader that he has no plans to stop construction of the project. He says he hopes to open it in spring.
