Binghamton City Council is planning to hold a public hearing on a proposal designed to streamline zoning regulations for business operators and developers.

The session is scheduled for Wednesday evening at 6:30 at Binghamton City Hall.

City council members have been working with Binghamton planners and developers to review current laws and permitting practices.

Lawmakers are considering changing or scrapping some regulations that may have discouraged people from setting up new businesses in the city.

City Council president Teri Rennia says she hopes those involved in the local business community will attend the public hearing and express their views on the proposed changes.
