In 1994 Kenner developed the area where the Treasure Casino now sits and this new property will give Kenner yet another new economic boost to along with the addition of Coconut Beach.
''I would love to see some type of boardwalk type development with restaurants and we've had a lot of interest from restaurant owners who would like to be out there,'' said Yenni.
