MEDINA, Ohio (AP) — A company formed by two brothers wants to build a concert venue at the northeast Ohio site of a long-abandoned amusement park that once hosted Creedence Clearwater Revival, Neil Diamond and other big names.

The Medina Gazette ( ) reports Scott and Brian Jones grew up spending summers near the Chippewa Lake Amusement Park, which closed in 1978. Their company, Flying Cages, is seeking investors for a multimillion-dollar, 8,000-seat venue at the site.

Scott Jones says he's watched as the property and left-behind remnants of rides deteriorated over time.

A previous plan by a developer to turn the site into a hotel and culinary school failed during the recession.

The president of the company that owns the park wouldn't comment on the plan except to say there's no activity now.
