Keesler land-use study meetings are next week

The public will have a chance to comment on a public draft of the Joint Land Use Study with Keesler Air Force Base during two public sessions next week.

The meetings, the third and final of the months-long process, will be Wednesday from 4 to 6 p.m. at the D’Iberville Town Green, at 1004 Central Ave., and on Thursday at the Community Development Building on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Biloxi.

Residents of either city can attend either meeting.

The goal of the JLUS is to protect the viability of current and future missions at Keesler, while accommodating community growth, sustaining the economic health of the region, and protecting public health, welfare, and safety.

The workshop is part of the ongoing development of the study to address compatibility planning between Keesler AFB and the impacted communities surrounding the installation.

The land-use documents were published earlier this month at Comments can be made at the public meetings, submitted on the project website, or by email to the JLUS Project Manager, Elaine Wilkinson, at Deadline for comment is by Aug. 11.
