Sides are being formed on the hottest Middletown Area debate in years. Its the NIMBYS against the Economic Developers. Middletown City Council will vote on the $340 million SunCoke plant in just a few days.

The Nimbys - Not in my backyard Monroe group is upset about the location, rather than the right for SunCoke to build a plant in Middletown.

The Economic Developers want to see growth at the cost of some resident property values. The pro-SunCoke group believes it must do everything possible to keep AK satisfied and profitable.

On May 6th, the two groups will face off in Middletown Council Chambers.
