Mayor Kenny Holloway Releases Statement Regarding Federal Lawsuit

Ocean Springs Mississippi

Ocean Springs, MS – A lawsuit was filed today in Federal Court in Gulfport against the City of Ocean Springs regarding the city’s proposed Urban Renewal Plan. 

Mayor Kenny Holloway released the following statement. 

“The City of Ocean Springs proposed Urban Renewal Plan followed Mississippi statute. Our city attorney spoke with Attorney General Fitch who will address the claims that the urban renewal plan statutes are unconstitutional. The city’s proposed Urban Renewal Plan has not violated anyone’s rights. 

It is unfortunate that our residents have chosen to file a lawsuit instead of having a constructive discussion with the city. I have personally invited residents to my office to explain and answer questions. I have addressed the concerns regarding eminent domain. We have given the option that residents can remove their property from the proposed plan. 

The Board of Aldermen has not officially adopted an urban renewal plan. The City has been sued over a proposed ordinance, not one that actually exists at this time.”
