WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Leaders in Wilmington have approved an Urban Mixed Zoning ordinance, but it won't affect funeral homes that perform cremations.

Council members voted to allow them to continue operating before approving the ordinance.

Nightclubs, gas companies and adult establishments are some of the things that will no longer be allowed to open in parts of the city.

Council members believe this ordinance will help with parking restrictions and make development easier.

According to the city, the regulations are designed to encourage reuse and redevelopment of land and buildings located within the 1945 corporate limits. For more information, visit wilmingtonnc.gov/umx.
