Zoning change in Reunion?

Looks like someone wants to do some commercial development in Reunion. Check out the proposed zoning change posted below.

The 2 commercial spots on the corners of Hwy 463 and Reunion Pkway are understandable. I wonder what the residents of Annandale and Whisper Lake will have to say about this, though? It will affect them as it is right on their doorstep.

The 10 acre commercial spot in the middle of Reunion by the lake is a head-scratcher, though. I can't see the residents of Reunion supporting that.

Some enterprising individual probably recognized that the good folks in Reunion have to drive way far off to south Jackson for their *ahem* recreational supplies. But if you put in an adult store on the edge of the neighborhood or on the lake -- a high class joint, naturally -- then, voila! Problem solved. No more mood-killing, late night, mid-party runs to Hwy 80 for, err, equipment. It's a gold mine, I tell ya! I just wish I'd thought of it first.

Maybe a restaurant?

Swingers Club going public, huh

If I am not mistaken several years ago Gary Cress got an exclusive on retail for that area. The Board gave him a 5 mile radius around his deal on 463.

Shadowfax said...

My guess is just another equestrian stable with rentable stalls, parking, areas for run and show, selling tack, etc. There's a nice one on Hwy 22 not far from there and it's classified commercial. Or maybe a bait shack. Everybody on a lake needs worms and who wants to drive to Wal Mart at 3 a.m. Or it could be that Donna Ladd is opening a news stand.

Maybe a swinging toll bridge......

It can't be conventional retail because of the lack of traffic. So, it must be something dedicated to the residents of Reunion that falls into a commercial designation. Like a Courthouse, similar to the Cypress Lake setup and/or a daycare center? 10 acres is not a small footprint.

8:05, what are you smoking? The 2 parcels on 463 get TONS of traffic!

Anonymous said...

8:11, Easy there, Turbo. I'm talking about the 10 acres down in the middle of Reunion. The parcels on 463 are no-brainers.

maybe a GPS store for all the track suit clad bimbos living on credit driving H3's. Or, Jeff Good could be planning to open an inner city staffed bistro serving catfish tacos with Asian slaw, um um good, Jeff Good. Fucker.

Perhaps for a pineapple store? I hear there's an increased demand for them out there.

Anonymous said...

the swinger references are so stupid. Don't you think we could come up with more intelligent humor?

signed, a non-swinging, haven't seen a pineapple or any dope smokers yet (I guess that's what you're talking about on hwy 80) paid a shit-load to live there, Reunion resident.

Anonymous said...

Maybe someone wants to build an office to take care of all the foreclosures out that way.

This has got to be one of the best threads I've read in a while.

Anonymous said...

8:42, you're not going to the right parties. The Hwy 80 reference is about the personal recreation supply emporium located there.

Avery Wiseman said...

8:42, heed 10:23's words. S/He is correct.

Also, please clarify whether the reference to your "shit-load" paid to live in Reunion was bragging or lamenting. Naturally, I assumed the latter but I realize that I may be incorrect on that point.

Anonymous said...

11:23, the "shit-load" commenter is obviously nouveau rich. Old money never brags nor laments.

Anonymous said...

11:23 and 12:04, 8:42 may simply be referring to a 20% downpayment.

Will Chip Henderson ever leave Lineage "Pine" Lake for Reunion once his latest McChurch is complete in Madison? Oh yeah, I forgot, He will be there on closed circuit television.

It blows my mind that people who consider themselves conservative have no problem living in Nutt-World. The man gives a lot of money to Democrats and supporting other liberal causes.

The hatred and envy for Reunion residents on this thread is disappointing. It makes me question whether I what to be associated with people like you. JJ, where are you?

Micah said...

I hear they are planning to build a flying J truck stop out near reunion.

3:10, to be sure, some of us think the denizens of Reunion take themselves a bit too seriously, but how can you claim to be associated with anyone at all when you use an Anonymous handle?

Its not envy, its the laugh that a pretentious biddy like yourself is getting a toy shop at the entrance to accomodate the lifestyle.

Anonymous said...

8:42 here,

I'm not bragging about a shit-load. I simply don't appreciate all the references to a place that I have invested substantially in as a long term investment for my family. My children will grow up there. We are invested socially. These comments to me are as insulting as someone talking about my own kids.

While I don't doubt that much of this goes on, it's important to realize that it goes on everywhere. I've seen these same people at River Hills, at CCJ, at First Baptist Church.

The perpetuation of such rumors serves no purpose whatsoever. I guess I'm just disappointed in the mean spirit of the people that do the perpetuating. It speaks volumes of their own character.

I don't hate Reunion, but I couldn't live out there with so many fucking trial lawyers pretending to be liberal while they drive their BMW's all the way back to St. Andrews each Sunday. The hypocrisy is overwhelming.

Anonymous said...

8:42 again,

I can live peacefully with the trial lawyers because I don't know any of them. Just like I don't know any that participate in all the other "action". There are 1000 houses and families out there. I guess we pay the lifetime penalty for the actions of a mere few.

Anonymous said...

i know alot of reputable stable families who live out that way, i also know a lot of younger unstable crazies that live out that way. but i do think you could use the rezoned land for what was originally planned: butcher-produce shop, gas and beverage station, and probably restaurants. but as far as the rest of the silliness on this topic, please remember money does not make the man, manners make the man.

Meanspirited??? I think swingers are pretty cool!

I chose to live in Reunion because there are so many children and wonderful things for them to do here such as the lake, beach, pool and playground at no cost. My children are very happy here not to mention the fact that the Madison Public Schools are wonderful. I have found friendly, nice, kind, caring families here who have befriended me and my family. You people who make nasty comments must not live here. I am thankful Reunion exists as I grew up in Jackson and have lived in parts of Jackson that were considered "safe" where now I would never let my child go outside to ride a bicycle or go to a friend's house next door with out me holding his hand. Just as most of JJ's headlines go astray - those of you who don't know the facts need to just stop.

lets do it for the kids, what a great mantra. It has nothing to to with status. Put the keys in the fruit bowl as you come inside, the drawing will be after dinner.

Status? You must not have children.

shadowfax said...

One of the forty Anonymous posters mentioned that he had 'invested socially'. What does that mean? I could take a stab but would rather hear his explanation. But, wipe your nose first...it sounds snooty. In sixty years could this be Fondren II?

Anonymous said...

5:25, I interpret "invested socially" to describe an investment that is characterized by involvement with the neighborhood, and being of service to one's neighbor. Examples of this would be elevation of community awareness about breast enahncement, the dangers of grocery-store sushi, Annandale-envy support groups, and twelve-step programs for people stepping down from 5 to 3-series BMW's.

818. So the 7 series can stay? Thank goodness, I was afraid I was going to watch them be dumped on the market.

Anonymous said...

I really wanted to like Reunion. I have a few normal friends who live out there. The women at the pool killed it for me though. Fake everything, rude, snooty, and allowing their kids to get away with anything. I don't want my daughters or sons growing up thinking these kinds of women are the norm.

Anonymous said...

I love the "no cost comment". Are the women out there that stupid. What are the annual dues?

I know y'all are just having fun on here, and I don't live in Reunion and don't want to because I am just not a "subdivision" girl. Reunion is just the new Northeast Jackson. Human nature does not change much over time. So just as there are good, hard-working folks in all of cities and counties and neighborhoods, there will also be those who are impressed with themselves and have a need to try to impress others. There are very reasonably priced homes in Reunion. You don't have to make a ton of money (in today's dollars) to afford that. For those who can't afford it and try it, they will get the Dave Ramsey "stupid tax" lesson. But if you don't want to live in Reunion, don't. But don't bash the entire neighborhood just because you don't want to live there. It's Independance Day weekend. We have the freedom to chose where we want to live. People die to protect our freedoms. Live in downtown Jackson, Belhaven, Fondren, South Jackson, Terry, the Rez, or Madison County. It's a FREE COUNTRY! Thank God.

8:42 here again,

Thank you 12:25 for the reminder that we have the freedom to choose where we want to live. Thank God for that freedom. I remain disappointed with so many of the comments here and to take issue with my use of the phrase "invested socially" is ridiculous. I guess we'll just agree to disagree. Today is a fun day in Reunion. There are literally hundreds of children lining the boulevard for a parade. The beach is packed with families. This is why we moved here. Happy Independence Day to everyone.

I heard the Reunion Swingers/Pineapple Club Rumor was started by Jealous Northeast Jackson Ugly Women.

I sure hope so cause otherwise me and everyone I know in Reunion must be too unattractive to get an invitation. Been looking for the freaking pineapple ever since I moved here so if its no rumor my feelings are hurt!!!

Anonymous said...

9:22, while there may be a few 7's in Reunion, we all know deep down inside that they belong across the street in Annandale. So, those stepping down from 7's should attend the Annandale-envy support group.

'scuse my ignorance, but other than a tropical fruit, what is this "pineapple" that keeps getting referenced?

Jealous Northeast Jackson Ugly Women started a rumor that Reunion has a swingers club and putting a pineapple on one’s front porch is the signal that they are a swingers club Member.

a holdover from the old Northbay swingers club

Anonymous said...

The "no cost" comment means we do not belong to the Reunion Country Club and we pay dues just as MANY subdivisions do. I consider the cost of the dues well worth what our children are fortunate enough to enjoy here.

Anonymous said...

Reunion is the Holy Land, swingers, losers, lawyers, and whores all, cause they do not have to suffer Donna Ladd's existence, Harvey Johnson, Kenneth Stokes, and Chukee Lumbdumbass.....even if you bought at the top of the market you are better off than owning in Hinds County.....period

Anonymous said...

5:30, the alleged Northbay swingers club was called the fishbowl club (nothing to do with a pineapple). Early in the night the husband’s would put their car keys in the fish bowl. Later that evening the wife’s would blindly pull a set of car keys from the fish bowl and, you guessed it, the owner of that set of car keys was her date for the rest of the night; allegedly.

I like living in Reunion also, particularly thanks to the extracurricular activities. BTW, I have a pineapple on my front porch!

Anyone doubting why covetousness is one of the 10 commandments just needs to read this thread.

9:41, grow up and get your head out of your ass.

The tone of this thread has zero to do with envy. For those of us who remember Reunion when it was still in Phase I development (I'm talking about maybe a few houses built), the joke about the swingers club was widely known. Stop for a moment and ponder why that would be the case.

After you've finished, go see Chane's store and check out his bag collection.

Finally, kindly acknowledge that there are those of us who find clear-cut lots, garage-front French acadian houses and Jersey shore loving women vomit-inducing, to say the least. The swingers club joke is just icing on the cake.

But then again, to each his own.

Hey now, I have two pinnapples on my porch and I am not a swinger. What does two pinnapples mean? I thought the pinnapple meant everyone was welcome not if you were a swinger or not.

Have seen 2 extremely cosmetically enhanced 40-50 y/o bleached blonde self-believed trophies @ colony crossing Kroger this week wearing t-shirts (a size or 2 too small) that say "Reunion Key Club". Hahahahaha!!! R u kidding me?!? I think it's hysterical that these old hags think they're THE sex symbols in this town! As a 25 y/o hardbodied pharma rep, please allow me to burst your bubble...your husbands laugh their ass off telling me about "pimping you out" to their friends when they take me out to dinner 3-4 nights a week. Then they tell me how great your bodies USED to be, while they ravage mine. You may live in a million $ home with massive debt...but my house/cars are paid for all by your hubby's practice...or should I say practices. Thanks to your Daddy's estate for putting him thru med school, granny. See u @ Broadmoor on Sunday. Hahahahaha! What a joke u old hags are!!! ;)

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
