OCEAN SPRINGS — The state Department of Marine Resources plans to open bids next week for the demolition of the Harbor Landing boat shed and restaurant at the Ocean Springs Harbor.
The Sun Herald reports the city lost its bid to have the state agency swap the property and buildings for land on Back Bay in order to save what Ocean Springs leaders thought could be a viable, revivable business at the harbor.
The DMR will open bids Oct. 2 at its state office building on Back Bay. If all goes as planned, it will select a contractor for the Harbor Landing buildings’ demolition and removal.
Jackson County owns and maintains the harbor, and county Supervisor Troy Ross said yesterday he believes the property under the boat shed will be preserved as green space.
