The City Council agreed to set an informal meeting for consideration of a request by major corporate property owners in Carson for more permissive zoning requirements on the city's largest piece of vacant property.

In a 3-2 vote, the council approved setting a workshop in early June to consider the request by Dominguez Properties, Carson Estates Co. and Watson Land Co. for the 340-acre vacant parcel adjacent to California State University, Dominguez Hills.

Council members Sylvia Muise and Thomas Mills opposed the consideration of more permissive zoning, saying the city needs restrictive standards to ensure quality development on its remaining vacant lots.
