National Hurricane Museum and Science Center, vote October 22nd

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

The National Hurricane Museum and Science Center will be on the ballot on October 22, 2011. The public will get their chance to vote on the relocation of its construction site. However, if the voters vote no, the 68 million dollar project will most likely be scrapped and put elsewhere in the Gulf South. 

Gray Stream, Chair of the National Hurricane Museum and Science Center, spoke to a group of young professionals during a walking tour at the city's premier lakefront. He stressed the importance of the vision of the iconic hurricane museum building.

Lori Marinovich, Executive Director Downtown/Lakefront Development, guided the mostly Fusion Five group, through various boardwalk landmarks.  The landmarks included: Lake Charles Amphitheater, Millennium Park rebuild site; Lakefront Marina and the proposed site of the National Hurricane Museum and Science Center.

Early voting ends this Saturday. The election will take place October 22nd.
