GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) — A group that inventoried Gulfport's assets says the city needs better signage to attract tourists.
The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1tJ1Qn5 ) ten teams of three surveyors each from outside the area scoured Gulfport to determine where the city can expand and what it desperately needs to fix.
The group, from the Mississippi Development Authority, said this was the largest "asset mapping" in state history. The state makes available these surveyors to provide a fresh set of eyes to cities in Mississippi.
The report released Tuesday found Gulfport has too many overgrown vacant lots and the city's parks need more attention.
