DETROIT, Mich. — Sen. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit) has released the following statement on the Trenton City Council’s vote Monday night in support of a new, proposed zoning ordinance and map designed to provide an environmentally and economically sustainable roadmap for the future:
“I am grateful to Trenton Mayor Steven Rzeppa and City Councilmembers for moving forward on the revisions to the proposed zoning ordinance on Monday evening. Trenton and Downriver residents have spoken clearly about their wishes for the waterfront and the importance of protecting the public’s health, quality of life, and our environment. Changing the proposed Industrial Waterfront designation to Waterfront Revitalization and requiring impact assessments for certain developments are important changes that will go a long way toward ensuring a stronger future for Trenton, and I support this new ordinance.
“While this zoning ordinance is a critical step forward, there is still much more work to be done by way of monitoring what happens at the former McLouth Steel site and ensuring that all possible protections are put in place for the good of Trenton residents. I look forward to continued collaboration with officials at all levels.”
