MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The City of Memphis is looking for community input as it takes the final steps towards redeveloping and revitalizing the Mid-South Fairgrounds area.
The future of the fairgrounds has been a hot-button topic for years after the closing of Liberty Land and the Mid-South Coliseum.
A Tourism Development Zone application is now being finalized, and the city wants to finish up its plans for the area.
There has been talk of redevelopment, with a $30 million youth sports complex and retail destination.
The city will host a series of public fairgrounds planning meetings, starting Thursday night at 5. The first meeting will take place at the Kroc Center of Memphis at 800 E. Parkway.
