04/17/21  Redistricting city ward lines after 2020 Census…  Ward lines will be redrawn prior to the 2025 city elections; my best guess would be sometime in 2022 or 2023 but that’s only a guess.  Redistricting last occurred in the spring of 2013 about 6 weeks before city elections.  I’ve heard a number of comments over the past 7 years about how wacky the current ward lines are but they reflect the population shift following Hurricane Katrina and resident resettlement in west and north Biloxi after the storm.  Compare today’s ward lines with the ward lines before 2013.

06/14/20 Hurricane Katrina infrastructure projects; still ahead… See Map
  M
ore infrastructure (FEMA) projects lie ahead… all south of the railroad tracks.  After bids are awarded but before construction begins to replace the water lines, sewer lines, drainage lines, roads and sidewalks, a pre-construction meeting will be scheduled for an explanation of what will be occurring and to answer questions neighborhood residents may have.  If you live in one of those neighborhoods, be sure to attend!  It’s been my experience that only about 10% of the residents, if that many, attend these pre-construction meetings… they’re for your benefit.
