A map of the proposed development shows how the RV resort would sit at the sound end and a 30-home subdivision would be developed on the north end. Ward 4 Alderman Ronald Hammons highlighted the area around the proposed developement to show how many vacant lots remain in the area, 10 years after Hurricane Katrina.

Long Beach officials have delayed a vote on a zoning change that would allow a developer to put an RV resort and 30-family development on the west side of the city.

Ward 4 Alderman Ronald Hammons said the turnout was about 20 to 30 more than the usual crowd that attends the meetings. They were there to hear more about the development proposed for property between Markham and Marcie drives just east of White Harbor Road.

The development calls for an 80-unit RV resort on the south end of the property and a subdivision of 30 single-family dwellings on the north end.

To do that, the owner, Huong Henry Le of Biloxi, was asking the board to rezone the area C-2B, which is beachfront commercial, to allow for the RV resort.

Hammons said City Attorney James C. Simpson Jr. asked for a delay in the vote while he researched some legal aspects of the zoning-change proposal.

The board will reconsider the matter April 5, Hammons said.
