Middletown City Council has approved with a vote of 6-0 both new zoning setbacks (so that the plant will not have to use the 600 ft. setback) and the rezoning of the Martin Farm from low-density residential to Industrial.

By Ed Richter Middletown Journal - Staff Writer Saturday, August 09, 2008 MIDDLETOWN — Although the "Stay Inside the Fence" committee is being disbanded now that Garden Manor Extended Care Center has dropped its support and lawsuit against the city of Middletown and SunCoke Energy Inc., a group of Monroe residents who live adjacent to the proposed $340 million cokemaking and electric generation plant continue to oppose the project. Nearly 40 residents attended a meeting at the Monroe Firehouse on Ohio 4 on Thursday, Aug. 7, to meet with Sierra Club representatives to discuss their options during the permit process with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. The Ohio EPA will hold a public hearing at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 21 at Miami University Middletown. READ MORE http://www.middletownjournal.com/n/content/oh/story/news/local/2008/08/0...
