PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - The Pascagoula City Council has voted to transfer a tract of riverfront land to the Pascagoula Redevelopment Authority, a move that city attorney Eddie Williams says will help with economic development.

The land that will be transferred includes the green space on the west side of the city’s public parking garage and other riverfront acreage north of there, including Anchor Square.

It does not include the parking garage itself.

Williams tells The Mississippi Press (https://bit.ly/1mhw2pm ) the land transfer was authorized by the previous city council, but the Mississippi Development Authority wouldn’t allow the transfer while grant funding was tied to the property.

Now MDA has approved the move, and the city’s new administration will move forward with the transfer.
