Meeting discusses future of Mid-South Fairgrounds

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The future of the Mid-South Fairgrounds is the focus of a Midtown community meeting Wednesday. There's a plan to redevelop the land and possibly demolish the Mid-South Coliseum.

The plan calls for the building of a new retail center, a facility for kids, and a brand new hotel.

Those in favor of the plan says redevelopment will give Memphis a major financial boost.

The meeting, which is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. at the Circuit Playhouse, will work to answer Memphians' questions about the plan.
