COLUMBUS, Miss. — Starkville will send a resolution to state legislators requesting increases to their sales taxes to help fund a new tournament-ready park after the measure gained unanimous approval from aldermen.
Starkville plans for the new park, located at Cornerstone Park on Highway 25 just south of the interchange with Highway 12, to host tournaments and regular recreation activities. The park is planned to have 12 baseball and softball fields, along with a 10,000 square foot multipurpose path, in its base design. It has options to add another championship field, a handicap-accessible field, an RV park, walking trails and more.
