Moss Point Community Development Advisory Committee holds first meeting

MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) - Moss Point is making sure those who live and work in the city have more of a voice in helping to improve their community. The city has formed a Community Development Advisory Committee, and the first meeting was held today at city hall.

The committee is made up of residents, business owners, bankers and even a funeral home director.

City leaders say the goal of the new group is to provide input and advice to the community development staff members as they create a revitalization plan for the city, especially in the East Moss Point area where there are a lot of dilapidated homes and crime infested neighborhoods.

Patrice Clark will have more on this story later today on WLOX News and on
