Biloxi Council approves Walmart plans

Biloxi Council voted 6-0 today to approve plans for Walmart to build a SuperCenter on C.T. Switzer Road in Biloxi.

Councilman Bill Stallworth was absent.

Councilman George Lawrence said after the vote, "That is passed. Turn the dirt tomorrow."

However, a few more things still have to taken care of, including the council having to approve a plan to cut down trees on the property. Walmart hired its own landscape team to try to salvage as many trees as possible.

Also new road is planned that will run on the west side of the property from U.S. 90 to C.T. Switzer.
