WLOX Editorial: Time to remove Katrina slabs

We will never forget the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. The scars are embedded in the minds of those who lived through it. But it is time to remove one of those scars from our landscape. Too many pieces of property are left vacant with only concrete slabs to remind us and visitors to the coast of that fateful day in 2005. 

Some slabs have been removed and people have rebuilt on their land. But, far too many lots are vacant except for the slabs. 

We agree with a proposal by the city of Gulfport to require the removal of the slabs and take away one more daily reminder as we move forward and live beyond Katrina.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
