Upon completing our first camping season with over 89 primitive campsites booked at our historical intersection on the Greenville Peace Treaty Line, Buckeye Trail, Ohio-Erie Canal Towpath Trail, Scenic Byway, Tuscarawas River Water Trail, and the Great American Rail-Trail, I've decided to solicit a financial partner to better protect a long term goal for the community!
The bottom line is that we're about $40k away from achieving the primary goal of establishing primitive campsite availability on the first private property coming into Tuscarawas County from Stark County. Ohio! We are now planning to secure the 1.98-acre property in full for specific usage to promote economic development via history, travel, tourism, & trails, and to establish a 501(c)(3) for that mission. Upon immediate acquisition of the deed to the land, we intend to file for a "conditional usage" change in our R-4 zoning status which will allow commercial signage and the ability to hire seasonal maintenance help. Of course, legal assistance and guidance are also being consulted to achieve our long-term strategic planning.
Forming a financial startup partnership will allow us to expedite needed development due to COVID-19 causing people the desire to safely escape due to cabin fever during quarantine and also move forward with the development of our Towpath Trail Snack Shack, a large Tipi rental to emphasize the Greenville Peace Treaty, and other potential revenue sources.
I'm proposing that any potential financial startup partner be issued a promissory note to be repaid in full within 36 months and secured by an assignment of existing assets. Upon repayment, the financial startup partner shall be recognized as a contributing founder of the Peace Park primitive campsites.
We are currently planning to establish a 501 C3 not-for-profit and offer any potential startup partner a position on any proposed board of directors.
Thank you for your consideration!
