Nearly two years after it was first proposed, the Mandeville City Council has voted 4 to 1 to reject the controversial "Port Marigny" project proposed for the site of an old concrete plant on Lake Pontchartrain near the Causeway.
Owners of the property had proposed construction of a $180 million residential and business development that would include 350 housing units, a marina, a public park and a possible hotel. The project was first unveiled in April 2015.
Council member John Keller cast the lone dissenting vote.
Mayor Donald Villere had urged the council to defer action as he suggested that the city may face litigation over the decision.
A spokesman for the property owners told NOLA.com that they will explore their legal options.
