The Memphis in May International Festival (MIM) is a cornerstone of Memphis tourism and an integral part of the lives of countless Memphians. The MRPP has burst onto the scene with big plans for Tom Lee Park with a tight timeline, claiming it will not adversely affect our beloved festival. Many close to this event think this simply doesn’t appear to be true. Have you heard MIM vocally supporting this proposal and its claims? We sure haven’t. I wonder why.
A plan of this magnitude deserves a closer look and far more careful consideration than has been provided thus far. Read on below to learn more, or jump to the email form to let the Mayor and city council know you are concerned about the impact of these plans on the Memphis waterfront and Memphis in May.
