Madison County Journal: New development will overlook Reservoir

A proposed 123-acre residential development overlooking the Ross Barnett Reservoir near State Highway 43 with direct access to the Natchez Trace Parkway recently received formal approval, and home construction is expected to start in late 2021, and early 2022.

The development, Expedition Point, will be a lakeside community located at the intersection of the Natchez Trace Parkway and State  Highway 43 in Madison County.

The Pearl River Valley Water Supply District has approved the Development.

Expedition Point will be comprised of +/-180 residential lots with access to Sirens Song (formerly Brown’s Landing Road) on State Highway 43.

Expedition Point Development LLC is managed through Frank A. Perkins.

The residential neighborhood will be gated.

The neighborhood will vary from waterfront, water view, and naturally wooded lots. Home sizes will range from 2,000 square feet cottage houses to 5,000 square feet family homes.

“The elevation of the property — up to 60 feet above the waterline — and the community’s more than one mile of shoreline will afford most homeowners views of the water,” Perkins said.

Perkins said people who live a quarter-mile away from the Reservoir will still have a water view.

“The development has been in the works for over two years now,” Perkins said.

In addition to the lots and access to both the Reservoir and Trace, improvements are expected to be made to the public access boat ramp that could include boat storage and multi-purpose buildings.

Perkins said they haven’t ruled out a future restaurant either.

Children’s ball fields, a lodge/neighborhood clubhouse, bike trails and walking paths are also planned.

Phase 1 of the project has begun, and involves approximately 70 residential lots with essential infrastructure, and should be completed near the end of 2021. Please contact Frank A. Perkins for more information on available lots.
