SLIDELL - Voters on the Northshore shot down a proposal to allow for a sprawling casino and resort to be built in St. Tammany Parish.

Sixty-three percent of voters went against the item that would have allowed Pacific Peninsula Entertainment to build the $325 million resort near Lake Pontchartrain. Voters were asked if they wished to reverse a 1996 ban on casino gambling in the parish, which has stonewalled P2E's efforts to build the facility.

WWLTV reports over $3 million dollars were spent on advertising to get residents to vote in favor of the casino. Another million was spent by opponents fighting the proposal.
