Eagle Creek Resort on Lake Shelbyville has been closed since 2009, and efforts to restore or redevelop the property have been ongoing since. Progress seems to have been made, with the IDNR reportedly planning on looking into development options for the property.
Dave Cruitt, Shelby County Board Chair says the DNR Office is looking to first look into redevelopment on Rend Lake in southern Illinois, with the focus shifting to Eagle Creek once the plan for Rend Lake has been sorted out.
The push for new development on the property has been a big issue in Shelby County, with the County losing tourism dollars and events since the resort was shuttered.
