DDA Tells City Not To Move Forward W/ Mardi Gras Boardwalk
In an effort to add more attractions to the Lake Charles Downtown area, a group has proposed a Mardi Gras Boardwalk to be put along the lakefront. But after examining the proposal, the Downtown Development Authority has offered there thoughts.
LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - It appears the good times might not roll, at the proposed Mardi Gras Boardwalk. In a special meeting Monday afternoon the Lake Charles Downtown Development Authority gave it the thumbs down.
"The proposal has been reviewed, and reviewed, and reviewed, but at this time we do not recommend the City Council enter into a long-term lease agreement with the Mardi Gras Boardwalk," said DDA President Adley Cormier.
The proposal development would sit on the track of land just north of the Civic Center between Veteran's Memorial Park. It plans to offer visitors shopping, fine-dining, entertainment and nightlife, plus a few extras.
