Before Monday’s New Glasgow Council meeting, a public hearing was held about the re zoning of a piece of land on Vale Road.
The land owner was looking to re zone the area from residential to M1, light industrial.
Several residents stood and voiced their displeasure towards the rezoning. The phrase ‘environmental racism’ was brought up by a few speakers. The matter was eventually referred to council.
New Glasgow Council took place directly after a public hearing on Monday evening where Mayor Nancy Dicks highlighted some of the events such as the MORE run and the Westray 25th anniversary this past month.
After discussion from councillors on the re zoning of the property on Vale Road all councillors voted the motion to pass the second reading of the motion.
