Episode 115: Guy Williams Works to Restore Pontchartrain Beach

This week’s episode features Guy Williams, CEO at Gulf Coast Bank and co-founder the Pontchartrain Beach Foundation, a nonprofit hoping to restore and re-open the storied beach at the lake end of Elysian Fields Avenue. Last month, the Lakefront Management Authority, which oversees the property, unanimously voted to negotiate a lease with the foundation. Next on the to-do list is moving the process forward and securing $20 million to make the dream a reality.

Note: During the conversation, the name Linda Delaney is mentioned. To clarify, Delaney is no longer a board member of the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation, which is now called the Pontchartrain Conservancy.
