Zoning changes up for discussion in Bay St. Louis

BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WLOX) - Bay St. Louis leaders are considering a new rule that would prohibit people from living in recreational vehicles. That's just one of the zoning changes the city has outlined to be discussed at a public hearing Tuesday.

The item addressing recreational vehicles says "No recreational vehicle shall be used as a dwelling." It goes on to say RVs are only to be used for recreation and camping in designated RV parks and can only be stored on land where there is a primary dwelling.

The city's revision of its 2010 zoning ordinance proposes dozens of changes and additions that will impact homeowners, business owners, and developers.

A new waterfront yacht club district would be established under the new regulations. That section specifically says "The land shall not be used for any dockside gambling establishment."

Other zoning changes recommended cover fencing in the historic district, dividing industry regulations into two districts, Limited Industrial District and Planned Industrial District, and digital advertising and billboard rules.

The public hearing on the city's zoning changes will take place Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the conference center.
