What's Up, Waveland? July 2021
Waveland alderman Jeremy Burke reports on Destination Waveland's new date; the status of the Nicholson Avenue paving project; and great July events!
Destination Waveland will be held on Saturday, September 4. In spite of the current national shortage of fireworks, Waveland was lucky enough to sign a contract in June for a fireworks show.
The Destination Waveland event will have at least one and possibly multiple musical acts. I’m hoping that the City of Waveland can get an excellent '80s cover band or a brass band to play at Destination Waveland, but the music entertainment has yet to be finalized.
Nicholson Avenue Project
The Nicholson Avenue overlay and pedestrian path project is nearly complete. The contractor paved the new surface several months ago, but the city of Waveland had some issues with the condition of the road. The contractor is fixing those problems before we authorize the striping. These necessary minor repairs are nearly complete, and striping of the lanes and the two pedestrian pathways should begin in a few weeks.
In June, the city of Waveland received $475,568 reimbursement from the grant Waveland used to complete the Nicholson Avenue overlay and pedestrian path project.
