Remediation Plans for W. C. REED PARK
August 26th, 2013 at 6:30pm
St. Barbara’s Church Hall, 1505 Denison Ave.
The closing of W.C. Reed Park has been a very hot topic in our community. This park has been closed since last fall.
Many of you attended the emergency meeting that was called last December to let us know what was going on with the park. Apparently, toxic contaminants (Polynuclear Aromatic Hydrocarbons PAH’s) were found in the park soil. Unfortunately we have not been given much information on the final plans since then.
This meeting is our chance to be informed, and have an opportunity to ask questions concerning the remediation plans for the W.C. Reed Park.
1) How will the remediation plan for this park affect me?
2) If living along the park, is my yard part of the old land fill?
3) Is there any danger from these contaminants when the soil is excavated, will these contaminants become airborne?
4) How will the construction affect this community?
5) How will the beauty and healthy trees of this park be protected?
6) Are my safety and legal rights being protected?
Your voice and concerns are important! We the residents have to live with the results of this remediation plan! This is our community and we have the right to get answers and protect ourselves!
Please attend this important meeting!
