Also in Biloxi, the city council is set to consider rezoning an area in central Biloxi, in the Porter Avenue area.
The proposed measure has already drawn some protest from residents who live in the area, as seen by signs posted in several yards. Those against the rezoning are encouraging people who live in this area along Porter Avenue, and just east of Forrest Avenue (where the new gate is being built to Keesler Air Force Base) to attend today’s council meeting and to speak out against a zoning change from single-family residential to multi-family residential for properties along Benachi Avenue, Porter Avenue and Park Court.
The council is set to take up the first reading of this proposed zoning change at the Biloxi City Council meeting scheduled for today. It will take place at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, November 12, 2019 at Biloxi City Hall.
