FROM ED CAKE:
Fate of Ocean Expo in D'Iberville Could Be Decided In Next Month
By Mary Perez
FYI: If I were a gambling man, I'd bet that the Ocean Expo will not be built at its current, proposed location in the southwestern corner of the I-10 and I-110 interchange. A better, more suitable, and less noisy site exists west of I-110 and along the Back Bay of Biloxi on property already owned by the City of D'Iberville. But whether or not a site-location change is in the works, it's too soon to tell. If the US Navy nixes the site next to I-10 because of noise pollution and ground-vibration problems, then the bayside site may be the most appropriate site in D’Iberville. Now, could the Ocean Expo be built elsewhere in other coastal city? Yes, if the politicians interferer, but that might result in a lengthy courtroom battle.
