Construction Continues in Biloxi

Construction near the IP Casino in Biloxi continues and at least one local business is frustrated.
Thuy Pawn Shop is a 24 hour business right across from the IP Casino. The business has been concerned for quite some time now about parking options for their customers. They brought their concerns to the Biloxi City Council. Today the Council decided on a plan to vacate a portion of Fayard St. and redesign it. This will not only make it safer for the community but it allows the pawn shop an extra 15 feet for parking.
Biloxi Councilman Felix Gines said, “We’re talking about a beautified area that the IP is going to improve. The pawn shop has always used IP parking. I think that will continue. I don’t think there will be any opposition there. Of course, in legal terms, everyone has an opinion on it but we think it’s going to benefit the city.”
They are hoping construction will wrap up within a year.
