Industrial zoning ordinance passes committee after fresh concessions to industry
Aldermen on Monday overwhelmingly advanced a proposal by Mayor Lori Lightfoot to tie more regulations around new industrial development, breaking a five-month stalemate following multiple revisions aimed at softening the measure’s impact on developers.
Aldermen passed the “Industrial Air Quality and Zoning” ordinance (O2020-4590) out of the City Council’s Committee on Zoning, Landmarks and Building Standards in a 14-4 vote, with opposition from Ald. Anthony Beale (9), Ald. Michael Rodriguez (22), Ald. Byron Sigcho-Lopez (25) and Ald. Maria Hadden (49).
