Midway puts zoning vote on hold

MIDWAY — Midway City Council did not vote Tuesday night on a rezoning that would allow 600 residential units to be built, choosing instead to reschedule the matter for Sept. 29 and to allow public comment at that meeting.

The council members had agreed two weeks ago that on Tuesday they would only hear attorneys for developer Dennis Anderson and for the Woodford Coalition speak about the controversial proposed rezoning that would allow more than 600 residential units on industrial land off Interstate 64 and Ky. 341. Under that argument-type hearing, there would have been no public comment.

But Monday night, the council voted to allow public comment in addition to hearing the attorneys' presentations at the Sept. 29 meeting. That meeting will be 5:30 p.m. at Midway City Hall.

If approved, the Anderson development would also have a winery, hotel and walking trails in addition to single-family houses and townhouses.
