On Thursday, the Mississippi Gaming Commission approved the site for the Oyster Bay Casino. The vote was 2-0 in favor. Duane Lewis and Dílbervile local Tom Moore are the developers for the project. It will be located on a 24 acre site in coastal Dílbervile. The project is expected to take two years and cost $150 million. Plans include shops, restaurants, and an artist village. With the approval of the site, the process of architectural design can begin. This should take an estimated 6 months.

Local officials are in favor by the new project and itís potential to renew the area destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.

Developers are focusing on other elements to attract visitors, other than gambling. The casino will have 1,000 slot machines and 24 table games.

Water is incorporated into the design. The site includes 3 acres of waterfront property. Plans include a sightseeing village. There will be a recreation of an 1850ís fishing village. With shrimp boats and oyster schooners. As well as replicas of tall ships and an educational display for the boats.

The property is located on Racetrack Road, near the Harrison-Jackson County line. It is projected the development will generate over $8 million in revenues for local and state governments. Potentially will also create 2,000 new jobs.

The Mississippi River and Gulf Coast have 30 state regulated waterfront casinos.
