Soon those of us who don't have boats will be able to enjoy Deer Island.We are happy to see the Army Corps of Engineers approval of a plan to build a 170 foot pier which will dock charter boats that will shuttle people to and from Deer Island.
The $360,000 project will also include a mobile barge for food vendors and restrooms for island visitors. The barge could be moved in case a tropical storm approaches.
This is a nice addition for South Mississippi that will help grow our tourism industry. That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org,
