Supervisors side with commission; deny dirt pit appeal
HARRISON COUNTY — Harrison County supervisors have denied an appeal by a business to open a dirt pit on Mississippi 53.
Chris Fore of Gulf Coast Land Holding, LLC, wanted a conditional-use permit for a 70-acre dirt pit on the state road but was turned down by the county’s Planning Commission.
The Sun Herald reports supervisors voted unanimously to uphold the commission’s decision, mainly because of opposition from the neighbors.
Harrison County has seen an increase in the request for dirt pits in the past few years, mainly because of plans to expand the Port of Gulfport and to build a connector road between Canal Road and the port.
