Lake Ellsworth expected to get a facelift

LAWTON, Okla._ Lake Ellsworth could soon be getting a facelift if one man comes through on his plans to develop the area known as Fisherman's Cove.

Bill Lafferty, of Lafferty Motor Sports, proposed paying the city $3,800 per year for the 260-acre space. The Lawton City Council gave the green light to Lafferty to start developing the area at their Feb. 25 meeting.

The plan, which was approved at the council unanimously, would allow Lafferty to immediately begin cleaning up Fisherman's Cover and in 2015 break ground on a race track. Lafferty's plans also include having a place for people to rent dirt bikes, golf carts and watercrafts.

Additionally, the proposal says there will be additional space geared toward recreational activities and a camping site with RV hook-ups and cabins.

The council's decision gave Lafferty a 30-year lease to the Fisherman's Cove property.
