PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - The Pascagoula City Council has approved a new Parks and Recreation Department's master plan.
The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/Wy6695 ) it's estimated the master plan in its entirety will cost about $32 million.
Councilman Harold Tillman says the plan involves much more than new sports complexes. He says it encompasses everything from the parks and sidewalks to walking and biking trails and community centers. Most of the money will come from grants.
A resident suggested at Tuesday night's meeting that the plan include more transient boat slips in order to cater to and enhance the boating community.
Park and Recreation Director Darcy Crew said officials have the funding for a harbor plan at Lowry Island and the plan presents fueling opportunities for boaters at Pointe Park as well as other concessions.
