Bond Approved Aiming to Spur Development in Biloxi

Biloxi is officially all set to start work on a development project aiming to improve the city.
The City Council approved a bond so the city can access funds towards further development around the Walmart Neighborhood Market off Popps Ferry Road. The hope is to help attract businesses to spur economic growth in the area.
The city is planning on completing Ellzey Drive, a road running alongside that neighborhood market location. City officials say it will be a perfect place for new development to prosper.
The measure was passed at the Biloxi City Council meeting today. Biloxi City Councilman Kenny Glavan said, “We’re going to move into that area and show the business community that these are parcels of land that would be very attractive for their business model. It has the services, the water, the sewer, the lighting, the roads, the sidewalks and the traffic pattern that would be beneficial for them to invest in Biloxi.”
Also at the City Council meeting, Mayor Andrew ‘FoFo’ Gilich honored former long-time Harrison County Supervisor Bobby Eleuterius, who recently retired from D’Iberville city manager.
