The Burlington City Council has voted unanimously to move forward on the latest plan to repurpose the Moran Plant project on the city's waterfront.

The plant -- decommisioned in 1989 -- has sat vacant. After years of looking at different options, the city has decided to do a partial demolition, making the building into a frame structure that could be used for a variety of activities.

The first phase of the project is estimated to cost around $5.4 million. Voters already approved that amount for economic development that can't be spend on any project other than Moran.

Phase one includes the partial demolition, stabilizing and remediating the site.
