The clean-up effort is voluntary and funded entirely by private dollars. No public funds have or will be used in the entire process.
The new development will offer single family to apartments, condos and patio homes – offering a broad range of housing options and price ranges for the community.
The site's soil will be analyzed before and after the remediation. Each home site will be retested again before any residential construction begins.
The majority of the restoration work is removal of soil. After the soil is removed, more tests will be performed to ensure it meets the most stringent standards set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for residential development.
The LandWell Company has been meeting with the community and interested stakeholders since 1999. Open to the public, these meetings have served to update the community on the progress of the project.
