CAMDENTON, Mo. — The Lake community has been buzzing with curiosity about the purchase of a large piece of property behind the Camdenton Wal-Mart, with all kinds of rumors about the plans. On Friday, the buyers introduced themselves publicly and gave the first peek at their plans: a mixed-use community including housing and a new hotel.
MO Lake Development, a local development group led by siblings Blake Hodits and Brandi Freese, is seeking the Camdenton City Council's approval of a pre-annexation agreement for new development.
A passing vote would forward the process of annexing a portion of the 2,000-plus acre parcel of land between Camdenton, Linn Creek, Highways 54 and 5 and Linn Creek Cove.
The group says they intend to develop a mixed-use community on the property. Phase 1 of the project will have a primary focus on housing and include a new hotel.
LakeExpo will update this story as MO Lake Development reveals more details.
