Group Seeks To Preserve Forks Of The Road Site

The Natchez Planning Commission has delayed action on a proposed housing developed planned for an area where a slave market once thrived.
The Natchez Democrat reports that the commission acted this week because the application was not properly advertised in the newspaper.
Developers want to rezone a parcel of land to allow for seven or nine single-family houses.
The houses would be located on what is the second phase of Chartre's Old Bridge Place, formerly a townhouse development.
The site is also home to the antebellum R.H. Elam slave market, known as the Forks of the Road, which was among the largest slave markets in the South before the Civil War.
Friends of the Forks of the Road Coordinator Ser Seshsh Ab Heter-C.M. Boxley is opposing the development.
