The city of Memphis, Tenn., and Elvis Presley Enterprises announced an agreement on Tuesday (March 5) regarding the Graceland Tourism Development Zone Master Plan, which will bring 1,000 jobs to Whitehaven by 2023, according to Fox 13. 

A manufacturing/distribution plant will be built to make souvenirs.

“We believe it will help lift some of the others in our community out of poverty,” Memphis City Councilwoman Patrice Robinson said. “It will also help attract other people to come and build what we want in our community on Elvis Presley Boulevard, [such as] new restaurants where we can sit down and dine.”

In the agreement, additional details are outlined: plans to develop 80,000 square feet of sound stages; expand retail and exhibit space; develop 30 guest cabins and related amenities; expand the RV park; and add 150 rooms to the guest house.
