Our 70 year old 501C-3 group owns the ‘now closed’ 100K sq. ft. Evarts High School. The intention is to convert the structure into senior residential living and/or multi-use commercial operations. Senior housing and Motel rentals for our outdoor recreational visitors might be the highest-and-best use for this facility. Our community has a 4,000 acre off road park, camp grounds, zip lines, and commercial services. The building is in excellent condition and might qualify for historical status on a portion of the building. www.evartsalumni.com will show you the entire project.
The 'upside' of this project is that there will be a $50 Million Elk animal preserve just 40 miles from our project. The anticipated annual visitors is 3/4 Million. This would be locate in Bell County between Pineville and Harlan County.
We have no competitors for this facility. We need senior housing. We need motel space. We have acreage for campgrounds. We have acreage for a residential subdivision.
