A $1 billion plan for rezoning Industry City stalled in September, after the local City Council member Carlos Menchaca, demanded the developers make another concession. Menchaca had initially described the plan as “dead on arrival” unless the developers gave the proposal more time for community input. The seven-month land-use review process officially launched in October. [CO] — Georgia Kromrei
