Growth in the Village of Maurice is fueling concern over what types of developments will be constructed and where they'll be located. That's why village mayor Wayne Theriot has proposed an ordinance that would restrict where certain developments locate.

Under that ordinance Theriot proposes any development that stores or uses a large amount of hazardous product that could spill or create an explosion could no longer be built within a half-mile radius of a school, day or health care facility, place of public worship or government office. Mayor Theriot says he's not against economic development, and not against future growth but wants to protect the community and its citizens from an event that could hurt them.

The ordinance will be discussed further at their next council meeting.
