BILOXI — The Biloxi City Council will hold a public hearing on Oct. 1 on a zoning change for an area west of Interstate 10 on the Back Bay for a $220 million casino.
The Sun Herald reports that developers told the council last night that new flood regulations make the 18-acre site unaffordable for residential or small business development.
Wayne Hengen, the attorney for the developers, says the 18-acre site is controlled by local property owners.
The developers have asked that the site be rezoned as waterfront, which is required for a casino.
Hengen says the Mississippi Gaming Commission will decide once the zoning change is made whether the property is a legal casino site.
