Sidewalks of the Future
The city of Waveland has been awarded a $100,000 sidewalk-planning grant by the Gulf Regional Planning Commission to design sidewalks north of the selected railroad tracks in Waveland.
This grant only requires Waveland to match $20,000 towards the design of the sidewalks. The money is designated for Nicholson Avenue, Old Spanish Trail, Jeff Davis Avenue, Saint Joseph Street, and Herlihy Street.
What's Up, Waveland?
New Efforts to Cleanup Blighted Properties
Mr. Siebenkittle will continue overseeing litter control and court-ordered community service, but will take on the additional responsibility of correcting blighted properties. Don has successfully enhanced the beauty of Waveland by removing over 600 dumped tires from within Waveland city limits and supervising over 4,200 court-ordered community service hours during the past year, to name just a few of his efforts. Beautification is Don’s forte, and I believe he will do a superb job tackling this new task.
I have already expressed my concerns regarding derelict slabs that are hampering the full potential of several neighborhoods. Over the next several months, I hope to see Waveland more aggressively address these blighted properties. If you have any blighted properties that you are concerned about, please contract Don Siebenkittel, firstname.lastname@example.org, and Mayor Mike Smith, email@example.com.
