A trip across town today led to the discovery that work has begun (or perhaps the better word is resumed) at the site of the former Foster's Refrigeration.
Back in July, when the Common Council appropriated from the fund balance another $52,300 ($42,700 had been appropriated in October 2014) to make up the City's 10 percent match for the project which is expected to cost $950,600 (just shy of a $1 million), Gossips retold the history of the efforts to clean up the brownfield site. It's worthwhile going back to reread that account.
More than three years ago, Mayor William Hallenbeck offered this site as a possible location for a dog park, but it seems now that it is being eyed as a potential parking lot for visitors to the yet to be developed North Bay Recreation and Natural Area.
