Proposed Margaritaville marina gets DMR approval

BILOXI — Developers of the new Margaritaville Casino have received approval from the DMR to build a 27 slip marina as part of that project.

WLOX-TV reports that authorization was given at Tuesday’s monthly meeting of the Commission on Marine Resources in Biloxi.

The marina will be built adjacent to the casino project, near the foot of 5th Street on Biloxi’s Back Bay.

A DMR coastal ecology representative told commissioners several other sites had been considered for the new marina.

The marina still requires approval from the Department of Environmental Quality.
