City Council Takes a Step Toward Rezoning Five Star Industrial Park

The city moved one step closer to rezoning its Five Star Industrial Park on
Monday as the City Council approved a recommendation to call it a Manufacturing
District. A task force that was formed to find a way to let high-tech industries
coexist with a rock quarry recommended the change. At Monday's meeting, it
proposed to the City Council a list of conditions and performance standards to
let Pike Industries mine its quarry in the industrial park off Spring Street.
The proposed terms of the agreement include limiting Pike's hours of operation,
and the frequency and intensity of its blasting.

Bravo to the Council for taking a positive step to protect neighborhoods and local businesses and to promote economic growth that will benefit all of Westbrook's residential taxpayers.
