Plans for a large vehicle recycling operation north of SH 66 and just east of Radio Road got a boost when the El Reno City Council unanimously approved rezoning the property.
Council Industrial LLC plans to use the 148-acre site to recycle vehicles. City officials said the firm is a subsidiary of LKQ, a corporation that is involved in a number of businesses.
Council agreed to rezone the property from Moderate Industrial (I-2) to Heavy Industrial (I-3) with a 4-0 vote. Council member Tracey Rider was not at the meeting.
