Gulfport Development Must Have EIS

 

The Mobile District of the Corps of Engineers has required Ward Properties to complete a full Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for their proposed 383 acre wetland fill in North Gulfport. The Domain at Prime Center is a development project to build retail, commercial and warehouse space south of I-10 between Canal Road and U.S. Hwy 49. Gulf Restoration Network and the Steps Coalition Port Campaign attorneys both submitted comments.

The Corps agreed with the need for the document to study this proposal in the context of a comprehensive view of historic wetland loss and ongoing street and house flooding problems in nearby neighborhoods.
