HANCOCK - The Hancock Town Council on Wednesday approved a zoning ordinance resolution by a unanimous vote.
Also approved during the council's monthly meeting was an updated version of the subdivision ordinance and the zoning ordinance map.
The new zoning district map shows a rural development district, a general commercial district, a town residential district, a town center district, a suburban residential district and an employment center district.
The town center district is mostly commercial, while the employment center is for big industry.
Town Councilman Sinclair Hamilton made the motion to approve the zoning ordinance, which was introduced at the council's November meeting. Town Councilman Robert Anthony McCusker seconded the motion.
During a brief discussion prior to the vote, Hamilton said it was important to remember that any problems within the ordinance can be amended.
