City of Southport Parks & Recreation Taylor Field Master Plan adopted April 11, 2019 by the Board of Aldermen.

Taylor Field PARTF Site Plan

Beginning mid Sept. 2020 thru June 2021 (approx.), the City of Southport will be replacing the outdated 1913 sewer system on Howe St. This project will consist of digging up and replacing all sewer lines and any sewer services from the intersection of S. Howe & Bay St. to N. Howe St. and Stuart Ave.

During this time delays will be expected, and traffic flow will be rerouted around the blocks that the construction will be taking place. Sidewalks and foot traffic will be minimally affected during construction.

We apologize for the inconvenience and possible impact to your property or business. Your patience will be greatly appreciated as we work to improve the city’s infrastructure.

The Census is a population count of every person living in the U.S. and its five territories. In March 2020, households across the country began receiving invitations to respond. Results will shape how billions of dollars in federal funds are allocated to communities for critical public services such as healthcare, education, infrastructure, and public safety. They also determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.

Knowing who lives throughout the nation means that communities can better support programs and services benefitting people aged 65 and older, low-income people, veterans, children, and newborns.

When you respond to the 2020 Census, you are helping to shape the future of your community.

This year is the first time everyone can respond online, by phone, or by mail. For more information, check out this video, or connect with me to set up an interview with a Census representative.

Don’t forget to fill out the #2020Census! This week, 500,000 census takers across the country will go door to door to assist people who have not yet responded. If you don’t want visitors, you can respond online, by phone, or by mail. Learn more here: https://2020census.gov/
