City of Waveland unveils $1.9 million project plans

City of Waveland unveils $1.9 million project plans

- for some time, waveland has bee- the only coastal city in- our state that has no public- restrooms on the beach ... and- it has never been home to a - light house.- but as news 25's toni miles - shows us, that's all about to - change- come the end of summer when a - nearly $2 million dollar projec- is slated to wrap up.

- quick!- super quick!- - waveland mayor mike smith's - enthusiasm overflows as he talk- about the $1.9 million dollar - waveland lighthouse and public- pavilion project, now - underway.

- mayor mike smith, waveland: " that's where the lighthouse is- going to be where the - tractor or where the crane is."

A plan like this would have - seemed un-imaginable as - smith walked out to this same - stretch of beach as a - firefighter in- the wake of katrina.- now the city is making way for - lighthouse, something - waveland has never had.

- mayor mike smith, waveland: " the lighthouse itself is going- to be square like - the one at gulfport, gulfport - harbor.

It's going to be- amazing.

It truly is."

The project also helps to - alleviate a major concern - expressed over- the years, as outlined back in- 2016 when tourists- complained to news 25 about the- lack of a bathroom facility - at the waveland beach...an issu- alderman jeremy burke knows all- to well not only as a city- official, but also as a father.- alderman jeremy burke, waveland- ward 1: " i grew up down the road.

I remember- coming down here.

I have small- kids at home.

We'd come down an- enjoy, and- one of the issues is we always- have to come home early because- someone has to go to- the restroom."

Toni miles: " but relief is right around the corner.

The ne- project has a restroom facility- that will take the place of - these porti potties."

Alderman jeremy burke: " this new facility is going to allow- us to have bathroom - facilities, all the power that- we need, but it's also going to- attract some stuff we've been - lacking because of the lack of- bathroom facilities.

They have- interest from volleyball- tournaments that want to use ou- volleyball complex &lt; that's - already out here> - fishing rodeos &lt; splice >, and- then those celebrations that we- have at the veterans- memorial &lt;splice> it's going to- be very useful."

And mayor smith says this is- just a glimpse of more to come.- mayor mike smith, waveland: " s this is hopefully gong to light- the way for economic- development in waveland, hence- the lighthouse on top."

In waveland, toni miles, news - 25.
