Millions in Grant Money for Diamondhead


Residents of Diamondhead have a lot to look forward to over the next several years.
City officials were able to secure $1.7 million in grants for multiple city projects. The city match for these projects is estimated at $600,000 for a total of nearly $2.3 million in projects.
The city is looking to put the money towards commercial development, an access road to help alleviate traffic, kayak and biking trails and more.
Diamondhead City Manager Clovis Reed said, “We’re excited about some recreational opportunities, some kayak launches, some bike trails. We are really moving toward bicycle lanes, making this a really bicycle friendly community. We’re looking at a lot of tourism opportunities. We’re moving toward a healthy, active Diamondhead and looking forward to this continuing to be the premier place to live on the Gulf Coast.”
City leaders say construction on the commercial access road connecting Aloha Drive to Diamondhead Drive East will begin this summer and wrap up early next year.
