In 1999 the city of Portland created the Mississippi Historic District Target Area to improve public safety, upgrade housing and attract businesses. Now over 40 business have popped up on Mississippi street, some including The Rebuilding Center, Gypsy Chic clothing, The Fresh Pot, Lupa Wine bar, Muddys Coffee House, North Portland Bike Works, Mississippi Records and Mississippi Pizza Pub. The Portland Community Media on MLK is Portland’s public access TV channels. Something I am greatly enjoying and taking advantage of.
