Restoration of historic lighthouse runs out of funds

PASCAGOULA — The restoration project for Pascagoula’s historic Round Island Lighthouse is moving forward, but needs $350,000 more to be completed.

Community and economic development director Jen Dearman tells The Sun Herald a significant amount of work has been done, but the department is asking residents to get more involved.

The City Council approved a Tidelands grant agreement Tuesday. Dearman says the grant authorizes $129,480 to the lighthouse and $21,580 to the environmental education trail for Lighthouse Park.

The council also approved a request for some of the grant funding to be reallocated from landscaping for the park project to the lighthouse restoration.
