D'Iberville to hold meeting for residents in newly annexed area

D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) -

Residents living in D'Iberville's newly annexed area are invited to attend a meeting on Tuesday with D'Iberville's public officials.  

"We're going to have our first meeting out there. And meet and greet with folks," D'Iberville City Planner Jeff Taylor said.   

D'Iberville began taking over the newly annexed area in April. Taylor said it makes up the northern part of the city. It's located just north and east of Highway 67 and is split by Lamey Bridge Road and Highway 15. 

Prior to becoming a part of D'Iberville, the area, that's about three and a half square miles, made up an unincorporated part of Harrison County. D'Iberville High School is located in the new area.  

"Biloxi had claimed the area. We had claimed the area and the judge awarded it to us," Taylor said. "Many times when something is annexed you have a certain amount of time to get infrastructure in place." 

He said police and fire services are already being offered to residents in the new area.

"Tuesday night is a means to get to know the citizens," he added.  

Taylor said the newly annexed property is part of D'Iberville's natural growth.  

"It's rural, but has seen growth following the out migration following the storm," Taylor said.

Tuesday's meeting will be at D'Iberville High School's cafeteria at 6 p.m.
