Woolmarket Residents Sign Petition Against Proposed FEMA Trailer Park

Some Woolmarket residents are speaking out about a proposed FEMA trailer park in their community. Tuesday, a petition against the proposed development was given to the Biloxi City Council.

The trailer park is set to be built on the corner of East Oaklawn and River Estates Circle. Residents at the meeting say they don't want the potential problems they believe a FEMA trailer park will create in their area.

Woolmarket resident Dennis Burke said, "I am concerned with the number. Where have these people been for the past eight months? Where are they living now? Why all of a sudden do they need to be put in a park area?"

There were 230 signatures on the petition.
