Rezoning Proposal Fails

Despite heavy campaigning, a proposal to rezone the east bank of the Columbia River between the Municipal Bridge and I-90 to allow industrial use fails. The corporation itching to get onto the land, Hernandez Industrial Steel, blitzed the local media with pro-rezoning commercials and the like, but a coalition of local businesses and environmental groups (backed, independently, by Raleigh and the local Glass Walkers, who would have been amazed to know they were allied) got the measure voted down.
