BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - East Biloxi was devastated by Hurricane Katrina's wind and storm surge.
The historic area along back bay has always been a big part of the city. Katrina wiped away the old Point Cadet Plaza, swept the Seafood Industry and Maritime Museum into the ash can of history and left the J.L. Scott Education Center in ruin.
Biloxi Mayor A.J. Holloway is committed to using this prime part of the city as a post Katrina renaissance.
"Point Cadet is very important. It's the gateway to the city of Biloxi. I think the timing is right to do something," Holloway told WLOX News.
Over the years, various development plans for the waterfront have come and gone. Biloxi owns the area north of the bridge. The state controls land in the area and collects millions through the Tidelands Trust Fund.
Mayor Holloway said Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, who manages the fund, is working with the city to develop this prime property.
"Secretary Hosemann is very involved. He likes the idea. He wants to see something happen down there, just as we do."
An important component in the plan is the new Biloxi Bay Bridge, which now allows connectivity between the north and south sides of Highway 90.
Biloxi wants to expand Point Cadet Marina, adding slips and other amenities. The vision includes restaurants, shops, green space and features that enhance public use in east Biloxi. Holloway said Point Cadet is a integral piece of Biloxi's history and it can be a driving force in the city's future.
"Point Cadet is where Biloxi was born and we can go to our rebirth there."
Grover Mouton, Executive Director of Tulane University's Urban Design Center, is working with the city and will attend the City Council meeting next Tuesday.
