Ladies Only- Join us for Bunco

Join the Neighborhood Association- Annual dues are $25 and are collected in December for the upcoming year.

All home owners are expected to participate in the Annual Victorian Candlelit Christmas by purchasing candles/ bags from the Association and putting them out the second weekend of December.

PLEASE pick-up after your pet.  There is a City ordinance requiring pet owners to clean up after their pet which includes a fine of up to $500.  If you walk your dogs at the Walthall Park- ALWAYS clean up! Click here to read to ordinance.

Who To Call:

When I have a request for City services, who do I call?  Call the Action Center 601.545.4500 or 601.545.4611.

When a streetlight needs repair, who do I call?  Call Mississippi Power Company 800.532.1502.

I need a building permit.  Call Land Code 601.554.1003 or 601.554.1004.

I need a yard sale permit. Call Tax Department 601.545.4522 or 601.545.4523.

I have a job that requires digging.  “CALL Before You Dig” number is 811.  Use it before you begin any digging project. 811 is a federally mandated national number created to help people from unintentionally hitting utility lines while working on digging projects.  Every digging job requires a call – even small projects like planting trees or shrubs.  If you hit an underground utility line while digging, you can harm yourself or those around you, disrupt an entire neighborhood and potentially be responsible for fines and repair costs.  Smart digging means calling 811 before each job and the best thing is that utility lines are marked for FREE!

 

HHN is a Historic Conservation District- What does that mean to you?

There are certain things you can not do without first getting permission from the Hattiesburg Historic Conservation Commission. This includes cutting trees, changing windows, doors, roof, fences, building additions, tearing down buildings, or making significant structural changes to any building in the neighborhood.

Go to the What Home Owners Need to Know
 for details about cutting trees, home renovations, and who to contact.
