MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - With so many new projects coming to downtown Meridian, some residents may be wondering what's being done to accommodate these changes.

“We are in such a period of growth right now. There’s so many exciting things happening for the city of meridian and so we wanted to take a look and get different looks of how we can take everything that's positive that's going on and create a plan for our future,” says Laura Carmichael, a member of Cultural Affairs for the city of Meridian.
Officials hope these new changes will help benefit the future of Meridian.
