And just how much will it cost local taxpayers to put in the intrastructure to support this development?

And how much will the Slocum Family make off of this?

And using Cabela's as an example of what type of tenant might use this property is a bit of a stretch. I have never seen a Cabela's built out in the "boonies" away from a major highway!

I wonder if any merchants/vendors that might locate in this development will issue gas masks for their customers.
The smell of creosote ain't too pleasant!

This is just another half baked half thought out typical political money scam! All you have to do is look at the people promoting the deal!!!!! Just say no! Down town Alexandria is dead! It will never be anything!! If you want to have development on the river get a gambling boat!

Wasn't Slocum's property in Wardville between Crepe Myrtle Street and Red River a garbage dump at one time?

Dixon couldn't even get a second for a motion for a discussion by the Rapides Pparish Police Jury for this turkey of a half-baked idea.
Shot down! And good riddance!
