Plans For Gondolas in Branson Moving Forward

Time will tell. Private funds. Still in the planning phase. When I see some stations being built and cable strung, we will know it really is happening.

Hopefully, the city will be intelligent enough to demand UP FRONT, some "Reclamation Fees", to be used when (if) this venture goes belly up, so the entire strip and highways to SDC from Branson will not be left with dangling cables, gondolas, wait stations, etc...save us the same old same old that we have seen for decades in failed hotels, theatres, etc....they just kinda hang around until the weather finally does them in, so to speak, leaving unsightly, empty concrete slabs, exposed rebar, and other misc DE-construction debris for umpteen years....

Agreed that there should be an escrow account for what you are describing but only if that is required for any and all developments and not just singling out the Gondola.

However, they are planning on building and operating this transportation system with private money instead of on the taxpayer's dime and it will not compete with pre-existing attractions so my hat's off to them for that and I wish them the best.

Noticed they cut back their original route-plans to end at SOH and 76 and that is both a plus and a minus. Shopping and show attendance are going to be enhanced but I hope the owners make some provision for returning stranded riders to their origin via surface transportation when one of our sudden T-Storms blows up and the ride has to be temporarily shut down for safety.

Are rights-of-way necessary for an overhead cable ride ? I can see the necessity for the pylons and "stations" where riders will board and exit.

yes or no

The city is also being asked to contribute about $12 to $15 million toward the project, but that wouldn't be in the form of direct financial assistance. Rather, the company wants to be able to use city-owned right of ways or to get assistance in acquiring easements.

Looks like they have a solid "idea" to build the Gondolas, all they need is everything else!
