The Big Picture

Biloxi has exciting plans and a broad vision for revitalization and re-development of the waterfront, from new boardwalks and expanded marinas at Point Cadet, the Small Craft Harbor on Back Bay, to a boardwalk and open-air pavilions on west beach and a festival marketplace on Back Bay, with restaurants, shops and other attractions.

Mayor Andrew “FoFo” Gilich and the Biloxi City Council this week unveiled detailed applications for funding to the state’s Tidelands Trust fund and the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality Restore Act.

Here is a look at the millions of dollars in grant applications the city is seeking through Tidelands and Restore Act funds.
