BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Treasure Bay Hotel and Casino was approved to move forward with several expansion plans Wednesday, according to Eric Nolan with Biloxi Planning. 

The hotel and casino plans on building a 400 space surface parking area on the land west of the casino, which Treasure Bay recently purchased. Officials involved in the planning process will soon meet on the site to review the plan and look at which trees, if any,  are protected and which need to be removed. 

Treasure Bay was also approved to move forward with presenting its master plan for expansion. 

But, it has to present a more detailed site and project plans as it moves through the approval process. As we previously reported, Treasure Bay plans a three-story parking garage and a 10,000 sq foot casino expansion that will connect its current 2nd-floor gaming space to the new garage. Treasure Bay President Susan Varnes hopes to have all the plans and approvals in place for construction to begin in 2019.

Westside surface parking work should begin this Fall, likely in September.
