Midway Business Park on Commission's Agenda

Knox County Commission is operating on an accelerated schedule this month, so as to wrap up its governmental duties well in advance of Yuletide. Things get rolling with the monthly work session on Monday, Dec. 6, at 2 p.m. in the Main Assembly Room of the City County Building. The agenda wasn't ready as of press time, but there's at least one major item that will be on everyone's mind, whether or not its on their lips: the oft-delayed vote on the East Knox County Sector Plan, with its controversial proposal for a business park on Midway Road.

Of course, it's hard to know what's left for anyone to say about the plan, after two more public meetings on it last month, so the work session might not give many clues about how individual commissioners are leaning. It will take a minimum of six of the 11 commissioners to pass the plan. The actual vote is expected to come at the regular Commission meeting the following Monday, Dec. 13. That meeting will begin at 1:45 p.m.
