JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

There has been no official announcement of retail giant, Costco, coming to Ridgeland, but there have been enough whispers to bring out more than a few concerned residents to Tuesday night's Board of Aldermen meeting.

The rumored location would be on Highland Colony Parkway, near Renaissance.

Nearby residents, like Julia Williams, fear traffic problems, increased noise and crime, if Costco locates here.

Julia Williams said, 

"I would say we want you, but we want you in a location that is not going to affect the residential areas so greatly and change the whole environment and the look of that area," said Williams.
 Costco was not on Tuesday night's meeting agenda, but Williams says Mayor Gene McGee has agreed to meet with concerned citizens next Wednesday at 2PM at Ridgeland City Hall.
