The site of the Jimmy Buffett-backed Margaritaville Casino has changed. Motorists won’t see it on the beach along U.S. Highway 90.

Planners said it will moved to the Biloxi’s Back Bay and they hope to have all the paperwork and license approvals so the proposed 68,000-square-foot, $48 million Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Casino and Restaurant will open by the end of 2011.

The developer’s attorney said they’ll have a tight timeline of deadlines and applications they must meet over the next few weeks if they hope to have shovels in the ground by March. He said local and state officials have agreed to move quickly. He said tentative plans are to get everything before the Gaming Commission by Feb. 24.

The master plan for Margaritaville includes shops, casino and restaurants which will have an outdoor dining area and an events center and a marina.
