Jones EDA launches new tourism website

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - Economic developers in Jones County have launched a new tourism website.

You can access it in two ways, either by going to www.visitjones.com or www.thenewstateofjones.com.

The site was unveiled Tuesday night during the 31st annual banquet for the Economic Development Authority (EDA) of Jones County.

"This is truly a site that is created for the community," said Ross Tucker, president and CEO of the EDA. "It doesn't matter if it's Laurel Main Street or if it's a festival in Soso or Sandersville, anything, it can get listed."

Tucker said this year, the EDA is also starting up a new community development foundation.
