    The City Council on Wednesday approved Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s industrial zoning ordinance and denied Ald. Maria Hadden’s resolution condemning religious violence in India.


    During what may have been the Chicago City Council’s last all-remote meeting, aldermen approved a sweeping crackdown on new industrial development, voted down a non-binding resolution condemning religious violence in India and approved a demolition surcharge fee for some residential areas of the city.

    Just before the meeting ended, Mayor Lori Lightfoot said it is her "sincere hope" the City Council will be back to meeting in person at the April meeting. The mayor said aldermen will "receive a briefing in the coming days" and their feedback is welcome.
