The Allentown, Pa., City Council just approved to rezone a former waste incinerator site from Business Light Industrial to General Industrial to allow for more development options.
City documents claim that "changing the zoning will make the property more likely to be developed by allowing more intense industrial usages," WFMZ reports. In addition, railroad access may be possible to the property, which may be needed to serve new industry.
WFMZ has more details:
