Ocean Springs leaders speak at State of the City address

The City of Discovery held their annual State of the City inside the Mary C.

Local leaders reflected on the city’s past year of growth and are building excitement for the future.

Ocean Springs has been making headway as a travel destination, not just on a regional level, but nationwide level for its small beach town charm.

City leaders are committed to preserving its small-town feel while preparing it for success and progress.

Several infrastructure projects, like the highly anticipated Front Beach event center and marina, will break ground in the coming year.

In addition, the city is seeking to annex two areas. The first proposed area is west of Highway 57 and the second is south of the city’s existing boundary. Mayor Kenny Holloway said, “Not only does Ocean Springs have a need to expand into these obvious paths of growth, but the city is making a commitment to provide a full spectrum of municipal services which are needed in these growing areas.”

Mayor Holloway stressed that with the unprecedented growth now is the time to be creative in shaping the city’s future, making Ocean Springs a place their residents, visitors, and businesses truly want to be.
