Midland City Council approved a new Goodwill location in north Midland and residents in the neighborhood are not putting out the welcome mats.

According to NewsWest 9, city council unanimously voted in favor of allowing Goodwill to put in a second location on Loop 250 near Midland Drive in the old Chelsea Rae's Interiors and Big 5 Sporting Goods location.

Residents have been fighting the new location fearing it will drive down property values in the neighborhood but to no avail.

The new location has had a meeting with residents to ease their concerns and they have all agreed to placing an 8-foot fence on the back side of the lot for noise control.

The new location should be open by the first of the year.
