The City Council on Tuesday night is scheduled to give final consideration to zoning amendments put in place for the land-based salmon farm proposed by Nordic Aquafarms.

First approved in April, the amendments were sent back for review by the Planning Board in response a lawsuit that challenged the city's process.

The last in a run of public hearings that included hours of testimony from opponents of the salmon farm, ended with councilors voicing unanimous support for their original zoning changes with several Planning Board amendments intended to give the city more regulatory authority over significant groundwater extraction and significant intake and discharge pipes.

Also on the agenda is a request from City Attorney Bill Kelly that may bear on a lawsuit against the city.

Kelly is asking the council to find that their latest zoning changes were consistent with two versions of the city's comprehensive plan. The lawsuit charges that the new zoning went against the spirit of the original long-term planning document, which was later revised to fit the new zoning. The Planning Board took the same view when it considered the question in September.

The City Council meets at 7 p.m. in the council chambers at City Hall, 131 Church St.
