Coast neighborhood opposed to amusement parke

BILOXI — Residents in one of Biloxi’s oldest neighborhoods are opposing plans for an amusement park in their area.

Homeowners in Biloxi’s Edgewater Park said the plan would damage the quality and character of the neighborhood.

WLOX TV reports the entertainment park proposed for the area would likely include a 30-foot water slide, go carts and music. Opponents voiced their opposition Tuesday at a public hearing on a rezoning request.

Developer Gary Crossing argued that the project would benefit the entire city. Some others at the meeting agreed with that concept but said Edgewater Park is not the place for the development.

A Biloxi City Council decision on the issue could come next week.
