* ReVenture Park may be able to operate without rezoning hearing, unless you take action!

As reported by Susan Stabley in the Charlotte Business Journal, ReVenture has quietly submitted a request for special zoning that would prevent citizens from having a voice in the construction of the proposed garbage-to-energy gasification incinerator.  “Developers of the proposed 667-acre ReVenture Park and its anchor project — a controversial waste-to-energy power plant — may be able to avoid a rezoning battle, thanks to a pending change to a Charlotte ordinance.

The city’s planning commission has asked City Council to approve a text amendment that allows an “eco-industrial facility” as an allowed use in two of the city’s industrial districts: I-1 and I-2.”…“Because the new use ‘eco-industrial facilities’ will be added as a new use in the I-1 and I-2 zoning district, the ReVenture site will not need rezoning, as long as they meet the prescribed conditions.”
