Snowstar wants to go beyond winter

Winter park officials will pitch plan tonight to be open year-round

Snowstar Winter Park wants to be open for more than just winter or when snow is on the ground.

Park officials will go before the Rock Island County Zoning Board of Appeals and pitch a plan to be open year-round.

The park is currently zoned for winter events between December and March.

A spokesperson told Local 4 News that the park wants to be open for weddings, receptions, class reunions, day camps, church camps and more as early as this fall. The park also is exploring the possibility of a zip line, obstacle course, mountain biking, disc golf and mud runs.

Snowstar is keeping its neighbors in mind, trying to host quiet events so they aren't a distraction.

A final decision might be made tonight, but it could be tabled for more discussion. The Rock Island County Zoning Board of Appeals meeting is 7 p.m. at the Rock Island County office building and is open to the public.
