I'm generally sympathetic to the residents, but TDC is correct on the sewage treatment aspect. When Midway was first conceived the idea was to build a sewage treatment plant on the French Broad. That would have been a BAD, BAD idea for several reasons, one of which was that it would open up an area that a lot of people (including MPC - obvious if one reads the East County Sector Plan) want to conserve.
An on-site system that treats only the wastes from the industrial park takes away that particular fear. That's not to say that the project doesn't have other problems.
BTW, I don't see much opportunity for a compromise. East Knox County residents have made it clear they won't accept a business park in any form, and I don't see TDC giving up on the idea.
