Port to have completed plan at year’s end
PASCAGOULA — Port of Pascagoula officials have been told they’ll have a new 20-year strategic plan in hand by December.
Lori Baer, from the Sunrise, Fla., office of engineering and architecture firm AECOM, attended a Board of Commissioners meeting Aug. 10 and gave an update on the company’s progress with the plan.
Officials say the proposal should position the port to remain competitive in a changing maritime industry.
The Mississippi Press reports that Baer says the firm is focusing on short-sea shipping and Brazil, which represents a “huge market” and opportunity for growth.
Port director Mark McAndrews says the plan will replace the existing one that was developed in 1996 and updated in 2004.
