Coast cities’ annexation battle continues
Published: February 27,2013
BILOXI and GULFPORT — A new annexation plan would cut in half the amount of land Biloxi wants to annex on the city’s northwest border.
City attorney Ronald Peresich tells The Sun Herald the new boundaries reduce the proposed annexation area from 7.5 square miles to about three square miles.
The adjusted area still includes the proposed Pitcher Point development. It crosses Mississippi 605 and extends west to the Biloxi River.
The first reading was held yesterday and the council vote on the new annexation area is expected at the next meeting on March 5.
When contacted after the meeting, Gulfport Council president Ricky Dombrowski said if Biloxi Council continues to use the Biloxi River as a boundary, Gulfport will oppose the annexation.
