SPRING HILL, Tenn. (AP) — Aldermen in Spring Hill, Tenn., have agreed for now to annex 200 acres that would be part of a planned $750 million theme park.

But some board members said they need more information about the project before a final vote next month.

Dennis W. Peterson, CEO of Big International Group of Entertainment Inc., earlier this month announced plans for Festival Tennessee that he said would create 15,000 to 20,000 jobs by building a theme park, two resort hotels, restaurants, a charter school and a sports complex designed to lure an NBA team.

According to The Daily Herald of Columbia, Mayor Michael Dinwiddie said the month before the final vote would give the city time to gather credible information from the developer about the project.
