City Council faces condo, bridge issues

The Biloxi City Council, during its meeting on Tuesday at 1:30 p.m., will face a host of resolutions involving condominium proposals that had been in the works before Hurricane Katrina, and council members also will consider voicing their support for a six-lane bridge to link Biloxi and Ocean Springs.

The meeting is open to the public and will be in the council room on the second floor of City Hall.

Among the resolutions the council is expected to debate Tuesday are three measures involving the proposed Pelican Isle Resort Condominiums, planned for DeBuys Road and U.S. 90; three resolutions involving the Seaview Condominiums and Seaview Suites, now under construction on west beach; and three measures involving a condominium proposal on Back Bay, near the north end of Oak Street.

A resolution involving the city’s regulations on how many condo units could be built on an acre is also on the agenda, along with the first reading of three ordinances, including one that would allow a proposed Cedar Lake Wellness Center to be located on five acres of property off Richard and Wells drives in north Biloxi.
