STATESVILLE, N.C. —

Statesville residents are expected to weigh in about a proposed new business park Monday night.

The city said it is willing to pay $900,000 for the land on Old Mocksville Road near Davis Regional Medical Center.

The city will only buy the land if it can be turned into a light industrial park -- which could mean more truck traffic.

Monday night’s public hearing is at City Hall at 7 p.m.
