BILOXI (WLOX) -- The Biloxi City Council is moving closer to approving a mixed use development that's drawn criticism from some citizens.
The development would combine apartments, homes and businesses on some of the land that used to be a golf course. It's located on Pass Road, next to Keesler Federal Credit Union.
A couple of weeks ago, residents of neighboring Edgewater Estates told the planning commission they objected to Bay Village. But at Tuesday's council meeting, a number of people spoke in favor of the mixed use project in west Biloxi.
One person said, "I believe the Bay Village Development provides a win-win situation for everybody. The development, if approved, will contribute a lot to the city's tax rolls, provide a number of upscale new residences, and would have the effect, I believe, of increasing the values of properties in the surrounding areas."
A vote could come next week on Bay Village.
