Waveland Alderman Jeremy Burke reports on the long-awaited Waveland Lighthouse going out for bid, other civic projects and improvements and the St. Clare Seafood Festival over Memorial Day weekend.
This construction project is the prefect addition to the foot of the Coleman Avenue beachfront. It will add another major attraction to the area, which now features the Garfield Ladner Memorial Pier, a volleyball court, a large parking area and the Veteran’s Memorial. The Waveland Lighthouse is a functional building and gathering area that fills a big need on the Waveland beach front.
