Does this type of development make any sense in an historic district where the U.S. Department of the Interior and the Mississippi Department of Archives & History are trying to support the restoration of Historic Bay St. Louis? I don't think so and will work to oppose this in my town.

Rebuiding a historic town is indeed a goal to be strived for. However the historic buildings in the area they are looking to put this are gone. Even if they rebuilt replicas of the homes that were there the historic value would not exist. Looking at the practical side of this it would bring money into a town that sorely needs it. It would provide attractins for families to come. Just a thought

The "Old Town" section of Bay St. Louis has long been a sore spot in the growth of the city. I am a life long resident of the Bay and desperatly long for the pre-Katrina days. But reality being what it's time to move on! While the down town area should make the best of what is left,I feel we have the best opportunity to rebuild the area to be prosperous and modern. Widening South Beach to allow for better parking and traffic flow should be a priority. No condos or any other eyesores like that but a nice area for people to go and park and walk during Second Saturdays.

This project is not appropriate - the scale, the style, the site plan are all at odds with the area. There are developers who will do appropriate development. There is no need to bend over for dubious developers.
