Possible revitalization of Mid-South fairgrounds

Mayor A C Wharton and his team submitted an application in September to make the area a Tourist Development Zone.

Officials said the ultimate goal is to transform the fairgrounds into a national and regional magnet. They stated they are hoping to attract new visitors and bring over 1,4000 jobs to the area. Read more about it here.
