Girdler happy Corbin is getting track

Mayor feels Somerset could benefit from development


Somerset —

“I think a facility of that nature would have a better chance of surviving and having a greater economic impact being on the interstate system,” said Girdler. “Even though we would welcome such a development in terms of working with Corbin and London, that would probably be the best location. You’d need the tourist traffic from up north and coming from down in Knoxville.
“That type of activity would not be boating-related,” he added, “and I think would have much more success in Corbin than in Somerset.”
