Council to vote on zoning for new areas of city

Land-use and zoning measures — involving annexation, and bed and breakfasts — are expected to be decided during the City Council meeting Tuesday evening.

The agenda includes a measure to amend Biloxi’s land-use and zoning map to add the 2.6-square miles won in the annexation victory over D’Iberville. The Biloxi Planning Commission has worked to make the zoning on the 139 parcels similar to the original Harrison County zoning.

Additionally on Tuesday, councilmembers will be asked to amend the regulations governing Bed and Breakfasts to allow more than breakfast to be served and to increase the size of special events that B&Bs can host.
