Council's Renaissance panel to meet with groups Tuesday; Renaissance creates web page for study

The Midway Renaissance Committee of the Midway City Council will hold a meeting Tuesday, July 27 at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss alternative funding, understanding the Memorandum of Agreement, timelines, and request for proposal concerning the grant for a market study to help develop business in Midway.

The meeting will be facilitated by Tad Long of the Kentucky League of Cities. The council's Renaissance Committee members are Sharon Turner, Doris Leigh and Charlann Wombles. The representatives of Midway Renaissance will be President Randy Thomas, Becky Moore and Bob Rathbone, along with Main Street Director Marcie Christensen. A committee of the Midway Business Association, John McDaniel and two other representatives, will also take part, according to Renaissance.

The Midway Renaissance website now has a page about the proposed market study, http://www.midwayrenaissance.org/market-study.htm. Renaissance's Main Street director, Marcie Christensen, says in an e-mail, "I hope to make the entire project as transparent and accessible as possible in order to improve our success in attracting broader participation when the time comes for public meetings and input from the community. I’ll be updating the page regularly and encouraging folks to read the latest news and stay informed."
