Officials celebrate first post-Katrina public housing

HANCOCK COUNTY — Officials are celebrating the first revitalized public housing property in Hancock County since Hurricane Katrina.

Karen Ladner, director of Bay-Waveland Public Housing, says in a Mississippi Development Authority news release that the property, Oak Haven, symbolizes residents’ perseverance after Katrina.

The 2005 killer storm wiped out much of the housing stock on the Gulf Coast. Hancock County took the brunt of the storm.

Oak Haven is geared toward seniors, and is one of two Hancock County public housing projects being funded partly with federal hurricane recovery money.
