Coast city creates wish list with RESTORE funding
Published: July 16,2013
D’IBERVILLE — The City of D’Iberville has developed a list of seven improvement projects at its waterfront that could be funded with RESTORE Act money from the oil spill.
Plans call for expanding and improving the marina, already a popular public recreational area. The proposed project at Fountain Park is a $4 million plan that involves buying more land to expand the park and building more public fishing piers.
The city wants to increase public access to the scenic Tchoutacabouffa River and improve existing green space along the waterway.
Officials tell WLOX-TV in Biloxi marina expansion calls for creating a “working waterfront” by adding a 75-slip commercial harbor just east of the existing marina.
The city will hold a public hearing Thursday at D’Iberville City Hall.
