Biloxi City Council to Discuss Zoning, Other Issues Tuesday
Allowing a Service Station to be Rebuilt on Beach Among Top Issues

From: City of Biloxi   Filed 10/15/07

The Biloxi City Council will hold a public hearing during its Tuesday afternoon meeting to discuss whether to allow a service station to rebuild on land south of U.S. 90 at Veterans Avenue in west Biloxi.

The issue is one of more than two-dozen measures that is on the council agenda for its 1:30 meeting at City Hall. Among the eight zoning and land-use items on the agenda is a scheduled vote on the re-zoning of more than five acres of land on Third and Pine streets in east Biloxi to allow casino gaming.

The service station issue, which the Planning Commission weeks ago voted to deny, involves a request by Clark Properties for a conditional use to re-construct Clark’s Shell Station south of U.S. 90 at Veterans Avenue. All service stations – regardless of the land’s zoning -- require a conditional-use approval.

The re-zoning of land in east Biloxi involves a request by more than two dozen property owners to have their property on Pine and Third streets re-zoned from either multi-family or heavy industrial to waterfront, which would allow a number of uses, including potential for construction of a casino resort.
