Hurdles remain for developers of a proposed Elvis Presley-themed resort, even though they now have Planning Commission preliminary approval behind them ... The commission endorsed the project unanimously Thursday night after more than two hours of discussion before a packed house in Hernando ... They're proposing a complex that would include two hotels, a museum with Presley memorabilia, a Go Kart racingcomplex and reproductions of the White House and Graceland.
Officials with Elvis Presley Enterprises in Memphis said last week that they were unaware of the project but would take legal steps to prevent the use of the Elvis name without their permission. The commission's recommendations will now go before the board of supervisors for their consideration. They will hear the presentation at the April 3 meeting.
