Official Press Release
Great Wolf Lodge Discussions Continue
The exclusivity period between the City of Gilroy and Great Wolf Resorts, Inc., ended September 30, 2017. The City of Gilroy and Great Wolf Resorts, Inc., will, however continue discussions regarding a public/private partnership for a Great Wolf Lodge and indoor water park in Gilroy. Part of any process will include environmental review of the site to identify potential impacts to be mitigated.
Great Wolf will continue to explore other possible locations that fit within their overall concept including shovel-ready locations where construction can begin immediately. Great Wolf's market study indicates capacity for the possibility of two resorts in the Northern California area.
When asked about the conclusion of the exclusivity period, Mayor Roland Velasco stated, “We remain hopeful that Gilroy will be selected as a site for a Great Wolf Lodge. Such a project would have a great economic boost to our town in terms of generating significant new tax revenues for the City of Gilroy.” He continued, “We will continue to explore and study this potential proposal including environmental impacts with all due diligence.”
