Downtown lake could be here in five years
It’s been a long, slow slog, but it looks like John McGowan is going to prevail after all in his vision for turning Jackson into a lakeside city.
This is a testament to McGowan’s endurance. He has relentlessly pursued his vision and bent others to his will. Being super smart and right didn’t hurt either.
The Pearl levee board has been voting unanimously in favor of McGowan’s plan. The corps, which used to call him a crackpot and worse, is now in support. McGowan’s engineers are running the show.
