Biloxi Community Center Renovations Should Be Finished By December

Biloxi has given workers a December deadline to finish renovations on the Biloxi Community Center. And crews say they're working six days a week to get the job finished on time. 

Some of the improvements include new windows, larger bathrooms, and an elevator. Once done, city officials say the $2.3 million project will provide some highly needed meeting space.

"We get an average of six to ten calls a day, people wanting to know about the Biloxi Community Center and when it's going to go back on line. This is a very important project for the city. It's a statement for the recovery of East Biloxi and the mayor knows we've got 12 Carnival groups that want to use this facility," Biloxi Spokesman Vincent Creel said.

Biloxi officials say Hard Rock Casino donated some of its theater seating to the city. It will be used in the community center's balcony area.
