Zoning change request passed by unanimous vote in Gautier


A unanimous decision was made tonight to pass a zoning change request from a developer for two parcels of land in Gautier.

This developer wants to construct 332 homes on a plot of about 86 acres on the south side of Old Spanish Trail near Ocean Springs High School.

The current R-1 zoning allows for the width to be 80 feet and they wanted to move that down to 60.

Some issues that were voiced during last month’s meeting included property value reduction, drainage from nearby wetlands, increase in traffic, and increases in students in the Ocean Springs School District.
