What's Up, Waveland - June 2016
Waveland Alderman Jeremy Burke keeps us up to date on the new beach trolley service, construction on South Street, the reopening of the Ground Zero Museum and an invitation to Coffee With the Mayor.
It will also be employing the hail system, which allows riders to flag down the trolley and hop on and off at any time. The trolley will be running 7 days a week starting at 11 a.m., and it's free to ride. Click here for the schedule and the map!
South Street Construction
The City of Waveland will be starting construction by the end the summer to fix a flood-prone section of South Street. The section of South Street just past Brown Street going west will be raised, and culverts will be added to alleviate water topping the road every time it rains. This project is being funded by the Hancock County Road and Bridge fund. Waveland is scheduled to advertise for a contractor by the end of the month and the construction should start shortly after.
Waveland Ground Zero Museum Reopens
After a year of Waveland’s Ground Zero Museum being closed, the doors are finally open again and new director Kathy Pinn is at the helm. The museum is still a work in progress, but visitors can enjoy the Katrina timeline, the H.C. Porter interactive "Backyards and Beyond" exhibit, and 55 beautiful, handmade “Katrina Recovery” quilts. The artsy renovations of Waveland’s only public building surviving Katrina are a reminder of the resilience of the people of Waveland.
Museum hours are Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 10 a.m.-3 p.m. For more details on the reopening, click here!

The City of Waveland and Hancock Chamber invite you to "Coffee with Waveland Mayor Mike Smith" on Thursday, June 16 at 8 a.m. at Leo W. Seal, Jr. Community Center. Join the Mayor to learn about important local issues and initiatives.
