So today we read in the Register-Star that the City is applying for a $200,000 EPA Brownfield Cleanup Grant for the Foster's site, but according to Bill Roehr, of TGW Consultants, "The thing we'd really like is to work with the Columbia Land Conservancy on this to take the site, which is pretty ugly and is a blighting influence, and do enough to provide for an environmental remedy" on order to turn the site into a parking area and entrance way to the hiking trails that are part of CLC's Concept Master Plan for North Bay. What happened to the dog park? Disappointed dogs want to know.
There is a public hearing on this grant application on Tuesday, November 13, at 6 p.m. The draft application can be reviewed online. This hearing will be preceded at 5:30 p.m. by a hearing about the City's application for a New York State Transportation Enhancements Program (TEP) grant for pedestrian and bike connections to Charles Williams Park.
