BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - On Thursday, the City of Biloxi Zoning Board of Adjustments and Appeals unanimously denied the appeal of Carroll Campbell to reverse the city's decision to allow the removal of 36 trees on the property for the proposed Hyatt Place Hotel. 

The trees are located in the area where the hotel and parking lot are planned. 

Beginning from the date of the board's decision, Campbell has 10 days to appeal the decision to the Harrison County Circuit Court. If she doesn't appeal, then a permit can be issued for the removal of the trees. 

In addition to that appeal, Campbell filed an additional case pending in circuit court to appeal the variance approval for the height and density of the proposed hotel.

However, a permit to build the structure can't be issued until the appeal on the variance is resolved. 

The developer has asked for a taller building and increased density (more rooms) than what the city's land ordinance permits, which is why he needs city approval.

Initially, he was given approval for the variances and then the appeal was filed by Campbell after that approval. 

If the developer chooses to reduce the height and density and comply with the current land development ordinance, a building permit could be issued for the structure.
