|Kelly’s Whitewater Park (Kelly’s) in Cascade, Idaho resulted from an asset-driven economic
development effort intended to fill the void after the local sawmill closed in 2001. This study covers the park’s second year of operation (2011). The primary intent of the study is to identify constraints and leverage potential for the park’s economic impact; it identifies community integration and urban connectivity as constraints and value-added activities as leverage. The study’s secondary purpose is to clarify visitor counts, which focuses on the conversion of axlecount into unique daily visitor count, which in turn allows for estimating daily expenditures.
