LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Members of the Downtown Development Authority said they have received clear opposition over the Mardi Gras Boardwalk proposal. Apparently, some residents have said they do not want that project on the lakefront. During Monday's meeting D.D.A. board members discussed their role in confronting the concerns.
"We need to listen, and listen carefully, and bring these concerns to whatever public forum we need to bring these concerns," said Adley Cormier, President of the Downtown Development Authority. "We don't know what exactly is going to be built until we see plans, and diagrams, and such. Right now we have ideas. Once they get on paper we can better judge."
