Planning for our future.

DSC_0012 (2)The town of Tunica, Mississippi was established in 1883 and ever since it’s been growing, evolving and improving to meet the needs of its citizens.

Today, that growth and modernization is more vital than ever – and more apparent as well. However it is only with measured, calculated and careful growth that our town can continue to evolve responsibly and help to ensure that Tunica remains a safe and vibrant community in which to live, work and play.

Want to get involved? Here’s how:

The Planning Commission meets on the 3rd Monday of each month at 5:00 pm in the Board Room located inside Tunica Town Hall at 909 River Road.
