Waveland Alderman Jeremy Burke reports on the start of Waveland's new sidewalk project, the St. Clare Seafood Festival and the lighthouse ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Waveland Avenue will remain open throughout the duration of the project, although intermittent lane closures may occur as needed to accommodate construction.
The project is broken down into four sections in order to reduce the inconvenience to homeowners along Waveland Avenue. The first section of construction will be from Highway 90 to Rue De Lasalle, second section is Rue De Lasalle to Herlihy, third section is Herlihy to Sycamore and final section is Sycamore to end of project. All drainage will be complete, cut driveways repaired and sidewalks complete before the contractor can proceed to the next section of project.
This project has been in the works since 2015, and I’m excited to see we are finally heading down the home stretch. The project will make travel a lot easier and safer for pedestrians. It is anticipated that the project will be completed during the summer of 2020.
St. Clare Seafood Festival
The St. Clare Seafood Festival has grown into the marquee festival in Hancock County for the Memorial Day weekend. The festival runs Friday, May 24, 5–11 pm, Saturday, May 25, 11 am–11 pm, and Sunday, May 26, noon to 10 pm
The festival features food, carnival rides, craft vendors, and the best free Memorial Day weekend live entertainment anywhere on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
Please make plans to have a good time while supporting St. Clare this Memorial Day weekend.
Ribbon-Cutting for the Waveland Lighthouse
I'm extremely proud to offer this facility to the residents and visitors to Waveland. The Waveland Lighthouse and Pavilion will be an anchor for the continue growth of Waveland.
