What's Up, Waveland? April 2019
Waveland Alderman Jeremy Burke reports on the newly completed Waveland lighthouse and the 12th annual Crawfish Cook-off!
This project is a great example of a successful collaborative effort between Waveland and Hancock County Board of Supervisors. The project is a significant addition for the public at Waveland’s Coleman Avenue beach area. The project was funded using Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act funds, Tideland Trust funds, and seawall tax funds.
Much of the new facility matches the vision outlined and discussed for nearly a decade. The facility has a convenient layout, such as user-friendly ground level space, an elevator and plenty of seating along the observation deck. The facility is low maintenance, has low operating costs and is ADA accessible.
The Waveland Lighthouse, pavilion and bathroom facility will be cleaned daily. The facility will have 24 hour video surveillance. No established hours for the opening and closing of the restrooms have been decided, but the restrooms inside the Waveland Lighthouse will not be available 24 hours a day.
I will let everyone know when a date and time is decided for the ribbon cutting of this much needed facility.
