IOC Permit PDF
Check out my *favorite* website, SmartRiverfront.com, to see a copy of Isle of Capri's Corps of Engineers Permit Application. There's some interesting stuff in there. For instance, the ramps from the hotel to the boat will be low enough to block the 50' of river access on the south side of the hotel when the river is extremely low. To remedy this, it sounds like they will have sort of an underpass/ramp dug below grade level to allow people to move beneath the access ramps to the boat even when the river is low. The application also discusses bald eagles, mussels, and even light pollution. Its worth reading, and maybe I'll post some further highlights from it later.
