CAMERON, La. (AP) - A hotel, a new public beach, a marina and a shopping center are some of the projects being proposed by Cameron Answers, a nonprofit group interested in revitalizing the hurricane-ravaged parish.
Robert Kidder, the group's project director, tells the American Press building amenities that Cameron has lacked since being devastated by Hurricanes Rita and Ike may entice people to move back. But they first need to find out if enough people are interested before spending money on those projects.
Kidder said they asked the police jury to fund several research projects at an estimated cost of $151,000. They include a consumer study, an economic impact study and a public marina consumer feasibility study.
Kidder said the research could be completed in about three months.
