River Corridor Land Use and Development Blog

As more cities move to embrace the river and capitalize on its exceptional value, FMR works within metro river communities to ensure that public access, scenic views, historic preservation and environmental quality are respected.

Here are the park plans and developments that our river corridor team has its eye on. Learn more about the program, how we evaluate development plans and all the places we work.

Development and land use updates are also shared on social (Facebook and Twitter) and in FMR's Mississippi Messages newsletter.
