VA property's future to be decided

By the end of the year, Gulfport should take over ownership of the old Veterans Administration Center and the city is trying to decide what to put in its place.

City officials toured the 92-acre site and buildings on Monday.

There are 10 buildings remain standing after the site was hit by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Gulfport Development Commission member George Schloegel says the site along U.S. Highway 90 is a valuable piece of property.

If the city council decides to open the site to private investors, the commission would handle the details.
