Planning Commission meeting moved to City Hall

The Biloxi Planning Commission, which usually meets in the auditorium of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Municipal Building, will meet at City Hall on Thursday to accommodate what is expected to be a larger-than-usual turnout.

During the 2 p.m., planning commissioners are expected to hear details of a proposal for a mixed-use subdivision, Bay Village, which would be located at the former site of the Edgewater Bay Golf Course, west of Keesler Federal Credit Union on Pass Road.
