Organization

ORGANIZATION OVERVIEW

Main Street Biloxi was originally conceived as a part of the Coast Main Street Project in 1990. From that humble beginning as a part shared, multiple-city endeavor, Main Street Biloxi evolved into a single city, multi-faceted, independent organization, entrusted with the responsibility to preserve, protect and promote the unique historical character of Old Biloxi, particularly as it relates to the downtown area. The primary goal of Main Street Biloxi is the preservation and revitalization of the Main Street district, an area that extends from Porter Avenue at the Historic Biloxi Lighthouse to Bellman Street, and from Highway 90 to the railroad on Esters Blvd. We recently added the Caillavet Street corridor to the Main Street district, as it will be the gateway to the downtown business district area. Main Street Biloxi is a very active and productive organization. We have 26 board of directors and 10 liaisons from various organizations within the city that attend monthly noon meetings held  on the second Monday of every month. We also have an executive board meeting each month. Committee meetings for Promotions, Design and Economic Restructuring also meet on a monthly basis. Each committee has a chairman experienced within their respected fields.
