From time to time, we intend to monetize the value of our more mature assets, and use the proceeds to fund new development and for other corporate purposes. This strategy efficiently recycles our investment capital to our future development program and allows us to retain a substantial ownership stake and establish a more stable income stream of licensing and management fees.
We also have further sharpened our focus on the Blue Harbor Resort in Sheboygan, Wis. We intend to increase our emphasis on group business to build mid-week revenues, and recently hired a new general manager who has significant experience in that market segment. Although the ramp-up for this property will continue slowly, we feel optimistic about its longer-term prospects.
With the opening of these developments, we will have more than doubled the size of our operating resort portfolio in about three years. With the cash we recently received from the sale of two resorts to the joint venture with CNL and our strong operating cash flow, we are well-positioned to stay on track to begin at least two new projects a year, as well as selectively add condominiums andor additional rooms and expanded facilities at existing resorts.
