Gulfport Council Says No To Proposed Subdivision

A victory, at least for now, for some Gulfport residents concerned about a small housing development proposed near their homes.

Residents of Hancock Place in Gulfport's Bayou View, as well as several nearby streets, say the nine homes proposed for the Cayman Cove subdivision, could cause flooding problems. Last month, the city's planning commission approved the preliminary sketch for the subdivision. However Tuesday, council members made it clear they feel the planning commission moved much too quickly.

By a unanimous vote, the council voted to approve the residents appeal of the planning commissions decision. That means developer Mike Achee will go back to the drawing board, and try to come up with a plan that is workable for both his development and the people who live in the area.
