West End and Snowden Districts


Southaven is a beautiful city and we are proud to be at the “Top of Mississippi”.

Banners wave proudly throughout two small areas within our City, The West End District and Snowden District. These unique districts highlight key assets that promote economic development, which contributes to the well-being and overall success of our entire City.

The pride that we have in our City will be exemplified by our formal designation of these districts and the aesthetic and economic improvements that will follow within their respective boundaries. This action is consistent with a larger plan to revitalize and beautify our City and there are future plans to develop other key districts within our City.

The West End District
The geographic boundaries of this district are Stateline Rd. eastward from Highway 51 to Airways Blvd. and Highway 51 southward to Dorchester Dr. 

This is "Original Southaven" and includes the original business district, functions as the northern gateway to our City and the State of Mississippi, and remains vital to the overall success of our City. (Click here to see Board designation)

These economic incentives are in place for new business entities to encourage revitalization within this district:

  1. Tax exemption from all City ad valorem taxes (excluding those for school district purposes) for 7 years for new business entities building new structures or renovating existing structures
  2. Waiver of business license fees
  3. Waiver of building permit fees
  4. Waiver of sewer and water tap fees
The Southaven Chamber of Commerce will also provide a list of its own incentives as well as help the City promote the development and revitalization of this district.

The Snowden District
The geographic boundaries of this district are Getwell Rd. southward from Goodman Rd. to Church Rd. (Click here to see Board designation)

This "Getwell Corridor" has become very important to the overall success and growth of our City with successful businesses; restaurants; the BankPlus Amphitheater at Snowden Grove which has become one of the most popular outdoor entertainment venues in the Mid-South; and Snowden Grove Park which is known as one of the best municipal parks and youth baseball complexes in the nation. The entertainment value and character of this district has created tremendous demand for future economic development.
