HANCOCK COUNTY — The state Court of Appeals has upheld a decision by the Hancock County Board of Supervisors to allow construction of a 472-unit condo development and yacht club on the Jourdan River.

Jourdan River Estates, LLC, owns 269 acres of land in Kiln. In 2008, the group submitted plans to construct 472 condos, a 130-slip yacht club/marina, and other amenities.

The Sea Coast Echo reports the plans were approved by a 3-2 vote of the board of supervisors in 2008.

Landowners Scott Favre and Jefferson Parker had sued to block the development.

The state Court of Appeals Tuesday sided with the local circuit court, which had upheld the board of supervisors’ decision.
