Lightfoot’s revised ‘clean air’ ordinance resurfaces for committee consideration Monday
Changes to Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s long-stalled “clean air” ordinance mean certain industrial developments would be required to go through tougher reviews by the city’s transportation and public health departments instead having to go before the Zoning Board of Appeals or the Chicago Plan Commission.
The substitute ordinance allows shipping and logistics warehouses to open by right instead of requiring a special-use permit, as a previous draft of the ordinance laid out.
