A family hoping to open a snow tubing and recreation facility is looking into two different properties in Nashville, Indiana.

Dale Martyn and her family previously tried to open the business in Morgan County, but the board of zoning appeals rejected their proposal in August after many community members voiced criticism. Some worried the park would hurt property values, increase traffic, and cause too much noise.

But Martyn says Nashville city officials are working with the family business.

“They’re very supportive of it, nothing like the other county, where this county is really trying to help us, trying to give us different options and different things that we can do," Martyn says. 

One of the properties is the former Ski World Property in Brown County. Martyn says she expects her family will decide which property to buy within the next month.
