Time To Resolve Weeki Wachee Issues

Published: December 23, 2007
We now have an opportunity to ensure that the historic Weeki Wachee Attraction remains open to the public and the internationally known mermaid shows continue to enchant future generations.

Under the direction of former Florida Supreme Court Justice Ben Overton, mediation talks over four months involving the Southwest Florida Water Management District, Weeki Wachee and the Department of Environmental Protection have produced a letter of intent. Signed by DEP and Weeki Wachee, the detailed letter spells out DEP's plans to operate the attraction as a state park, which will not only ensure its existence, but also enhance the facility and its amenities so even more people can enjoy a slice of old-style Florida entertainment.
