Two more subdivisions recently have been approved for development in Petal, said Planning Commission President B.C. Lewis.
"We're all for it, as long as they're up to our regulations," he said."Most of them are selling before they complete the homes.It's a good thing for Petal - we anticipate things darn near doubling by the time the Evelyn Gandy Parkway is said and done.We're looking for it to boom."
Most of Petal's new residents are young couples with children, Lewis said.
"I don't know where all these people are coming from to tell you the truth, but it's our schools bringing them in," he said."We have the best schools in the state."
Petal's schools have repeatedly received a Level 5 rating, the highest possible.
The quest for family-friendly neighborhoods, Lewis said, is the reason Petal's Planning Commission has upgraded its requirements for subdivision proposals, which now include not just amenities like green space but functional elements like sidewalks and curbs that are absent from most existing Petal neighborhoods.

B.C. Lewis, chairman of the Planning Commission, said action is needed.
"We kept discussing these small undeveloped lots, and we knew we would have to do something with it," he said.
Alderman-at-Large Kay Fairley said the original ordinance was passed in reaction to a large number of people attempting to move into the city after Hurricane Katrina.
"Right after Katrina people came in trying to put little houses everywhere they could find a little lot and that's when we changed it from 1,200 to 1,400 square feet," she said.

"It's just a win-win situation," said Planning Commission Chairman B.C. Lewis."This is a run-down neighborhood, very much so."
The mayor, Lewis said, received the same treatment as any other property owner, but the chairman said he can't recall a similar request.

The number of trailers has decreased to a couple dozen, according to chairman B.C. Lewis.
The remaining mobile homes are to be removed from the property once the owners vacate them or die.Commission members were considering an ordinance to be written to allow "hybrid" homes or trailers that have been modified to have the appearance of a home.
The modified homes would be allowed to stay on the property even if the owner vacated it and wanted to sell it.
"If we're going to leave the things there, they ought to cover it up to where you can't tell it was ever a house trailer," Lewis said.
Alderman James Moore proposed that natural elements such as wood or brick should encase the trailer.He said the ordinance should also include a time limit for requirements to be met.
