Dear resident,
I wanted to be sure you were aware of a request for zoning change that would allow a gravel pit in Lamar county on a stream that is a tributary to the Pascacoula River. The area is currently zoned as residential. After the last public hearing at the courthouse in Purvis, MS, the Lamar county planning commission tabled it for consideration at their February 10 meeting at 2:30. On February 19, at 9 AM the Board of Supervisors will vote and make the final decision regarding the issue.
