01/19/22  At Tuesday’s Council meeting, the meeting times for two (2) council meetings were changed, on a motion by Council member Newman, and amended by the Council.  Those meetings are February 22 & March 22, and will begin at 6:00 pm, not 1:30 pm.

01/11/22  Proposed development at Debuys Road & Beach Drive
The city’s Development Review Committee (DRC) heard a proposal last week to construct a convenience store/gas station with food service at the east corner of Debuys Road and Beach Drive.  Those following this development should check the Planning Commission’s agenda to see when it will be on their agenda for a presentation and public hearing/comments.  If the development moves forward, and some do not for various reasons, it will require approval for a Conditional Use from the city council.

  

12/29/21  Subdivision, “Grande View Green”, planned for the old “Breakers” property, west of Grande View apartments… yet to be presented to the city’s Development Review Committee.

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.
