The county had to adopt the plan to become eligible to offer TIF funding.
While yesterday’s vote did not address any specific projects, county leaders have said they would consider working with the city of Gautier to support a $90-million project is to redevelop Singing River Mall and the Gautier Plaza Shopping Center.
