BELFAST, MAINE - Neighbors of a planned salmon farm in Belfast say city officials skirted local rules when they made a zone change that made the project possible.

The Bangor Daily News reports the residents have filed a lawsuit against the city of Belfast. The city made the changes months ago to allow Norwegian firm Nordic Aquafarms to move ahead with the land-based salmon project.
