Biloxi City Council Discusses Improvements to Vieux Marche

The Biloxi City Council held a special meeting Tuesday to discuss road improvements in the Vieux Marche.

The community development team introduced a downtown Biloxi progress plan that would draw more culture and entertainment into the city. Some of the plans include making downtown streets two lanes instead of one. Additional parking on both sides of the street would also be added.

Jerry Creel, Community Development Director for Biloxi, says, “One of the things we saw is the vision for downtown was that it needed to be an entity in itself, in other words, to have a unique character to it so that when people are crossing the street, they know that they’re walking into something different.”
