Biloxi council rezones part of Deer Island

Deer Island

BILOXI — The Biloxi City Council has rezoned eight acres of Deer Island at the request of a developer who wants to build a resort.

Tuesday’s vote was 5-1. The council added a stipulation that a casino not be allowed as part of the Oasis resort.

Larry Mitrenga, owner and developer of the property, says he plans a restaurant, entertainment pavilion and eight three-story buildings with 96 lodging units. Two of the buildings will be condos for local people who want to stay on the island and he said the other six will be hotel units.
