Resort, restaurant coming to Gulfport harbor?

The Gulfport City Council voted today to convey a piece of property at the harbor over to the Gulfport Redevelopment Commission in anticipation of a private developer building a 12-suite resort and restaurant at the site. If approved by the GRC, Saltgrass Outdoors would enter into a 15-year lease with future 10-year renewable options. The $2.5 million project would bring 55 jobs to the community plus 92 temporary construction jobs. See Wednesday's Sun Herald for more information.
