The City of Moss Point and the Moss Point Community Development Advisory Committee are joining forces to kick-off the East Moss Point Revitalization program, a one-year clean-up effort focused in East Moss Point Nov. 2015 through Sept. 2016.

The revitalization campaign will be in the immediate areas east of Highway 63 to Leo Street and South of Orange Grove Rd. to Highway 90.  This project is funded by the City’s Community Development Block Grant Entitlement Program – U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
