Council members would wear two hats in rezoning

The Midway City Council is likely to vote this summer on whether to rezone Midway Station, a largely failed industrial park, for residential and commercial development.

The City of Midway also makes payments on the bonds used to buy and develop the Midway Station property, and will continue to make payments until the land is sold. That raises the prospect of conflicting interests – not for council members as individuals, but in their roles as stewards of the city’s economic and overall well-being.
