This week, a reader wants to know what will happen with the damaged seawalls around the Gulfport Municipal Marina.
Question: I didn’t see any money to repair the two seawalls that have collapsed. One is by Osgood Point leading into the Gulfport Municipal Marina. The other is on the south side of the Gulfport Municipal Marina. The parking lot has collapsed at spots. When are these repairs scheduled to be repaired? —Dianne Benedetti
Answer: The Gabber Newspaper spoke with Marina Director Denis Frain about the future of the seawalls in Gulfport.
“All three seawalls are in the permit stages at this point. We hope to begin construction in 45 days,” said Frain.
On Oct. 17, Gulfport City Council approved resolution 2023-100, which allows Stantec Consulting Services, Inc. to run a Marina Community Engagement Concept study. This will let residents voice their opinions on what is to happen with the marina, and how it can be improved. The results of this will work towards making decisions for what to do with the seawalls in Gulfport.
