New City Report Outlines Progress, Challenges
in Biloxi

From: City of Biloxi   Vincent Creel   Filed 11/20/10  GCN

A new report due out gives residents of Biloxi and others a detailed status of the progress that the city has made in the five years since Hurricane Katrina, and provides insight into the work that remains to be done.

"The State of the City 2010: Katrina +5.1, Where we are today" is a 16-page compendium of facts, figures, charts, photographs and artist's renderings, detailing the progress of city rebuilding projects, public housing, public schools, and public transit. The report, which should be in mailboxes citywide by Wednesday, also includes information from Keesler Air Force Base, MEMA and FEMA.

Included are maps that show the status and location of improvement projects citywide, water and sewer progress in the Woolmarket community, and annexation areas at the northeastern and northwestern boundaries of the city.

Said Mayor A.J. Holloway: "What you'll see in this year's report is a great deal of progress and a number of challenges we still face."
