Work in final stages at Biloxi Community Center — Dec. 3, 2007

Here is a collection of photographs of the interior and exterior of the Biloxi Community Center on Howard Avenue, taken Dec. 3, 2007. Mayor A.J. Holloway announced today that the facility is now taking reservations for events scheduled for January and thereafter. Construction workers with Starks Contracting Co. are aiming to have the storm-ravaged facility completed by Dec. 23, 2007. Among the improvements to the facility, which was originally constructed in 1968: a new roof, new dance floor, addition of an elevator and exterior stairwells, a new interior earthtone color scheme, new lighting and sound systems, and, courtesy of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, new cushioned seating in the balcony area.
