Flowood: no new apartments for now
FLOWOOD — Flowood officials have placed a moratorium on building new apartment complexes in the city limits.
Mayor Gary Rhoads says he doesn’t want Flowood know as an apartment city.
Rhoads tells The Clarion-Ledger that the Jackson suburb is also redoing its land comprehensive zoning plan.
Roughly 60 percent of the city’s residents rent an apartment, house or mobile home, according to the 2000 census.
Rhoads says Flowood has two or three open pieces of property zoned for apartment complexes.
The Central Mississippi Planning and Development District is helping the city look at updating its zoning ordinances.
Over the years, other Jackson area communities have had moratoriums on apartment developments, including Byram, Pearl and Rankin County. Only Rankin County’s remains in effect.
