The City Paper's JR Lind reports:
While [a preservation] group will be fighting to maintain the status quo — a half-hour earlier on the other side of the fairgrounds, another meeting about the fairgrounds’ future will take place.
Council member Sandra Moore — whose district includes the fairgrounds — is hosting a public meeting at 6 p.m. in Wilson Hall to “discuss the process going forward for redevelopment plans,” according to Dean’s spokesperson Janel Lacy.
Moore did not immediately return phone calls Tuesday afternoon.
Watson said he is “aware” of the other public meeting.
“She ought to be [at the preservation meeting]. It sits in the middle of her district. We are going to have people handing out handbills in front of Wilson Hall inviting them to our meeting,” he said.
The preservation meeting will be hosted by former council member Ronnie Greer and Watson said a number of current council members said they will attend.
