News Journal: Newark board sets data center hearing

The Newark Board of Adjustment has set a March 19 special meeting to hear the appeals of a city zoning decision permitting a gas-fired power plant as part of a data center at the former Chrysler site. Due to high public interest in the matter, the city has reserved Newark High School’s auditorium to accommodate a large crowd, officials said. Two appeals are pending before the board, which hears and decides appeals involving interpretation of Newark’s zoning code.
