Biloxi City Council to Consider Convention Center District, Other Issues
From: City of Biloxi    Vincent Creel     Filed 7/23/07  GCN

Land-use and zoning issues will dominate the agenda Tuesday afternoon at 1:30, when City Council members gather for their regularly scheduled meeting at City Hall.

Among the issues council members are scheduled to decide is a measure calling for the creation of a Convention Center Overlay District from Veterans Avenue to DeBuys Road.

The proposal, which was originally recommended by the Reviving the Renaissance initiative, would allow increased density, structure height and floor-area ratio allowances, and adjust parking requirements for areas within the district. (To see background on the district, as contained in a notice published in May, click here.)

The council will also consider a request to allow construction of a 224-unit apartment complex, including 10 two- and three-story structures, on nearly 12 acres of land at Cedar Lake and Brodie roads.

Another measure proposes to re-zone 14 parcels of land on Lameuse and Elder streets on Back Bay from single family to multi-family.
