City of Pascagoula – Mississippi’s Flagship City
Pascagoula, located on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, is known as Mississippi’s Flagship City and is our state’s largest city. It is home to over 22,000 residents and the State’s largest employer and busiest port. In an effort to support these assets, the city’s urban renewal agency, the Pascagoula Redevelopment Authority (PRA) has created a project along the riverfront that is reflective of our city’s adopted slogan, “Pascagoula: a Great Place to Live, Work & Play!”
The riverfront project involves two sites with distinct and adjacent tracts of land. PRA owns seven acres of property along the Pascagoula River that are roughly bounded by Watts Avenue (to the north) and John Street (to the south). This site has been designated as the PRA Site.
Front Street Properties, LLC, a private land owner, has expressed interest in selling or leasing, to the developer, five additional acres of the property joining the PRA Site along the Pascagoula River. It is designated as the Platt Site and is roughly bounded by John Street (to the north) and Dupont Avenue (to the south). The Platt Site is within the urban renewal area and falls under the urban renewal plan adopted by the City of Pascagoula.
The PRA plans to maximize the development potential of each of the sites in accordance with the City’s urban renewal plan and purposes.
