PUBLIC MEETING TO BE HELD TO COMMENT ON THE US EPA BROWNFIELDS CLEANUP GRANT THE CITY WILL BE SUBMITTING
The City of Piqua is hosting a public meeting on December 2, 2016 at 2:00 PM in the City Commission Chambers at the Municipal Government Complex, 201 West Water Street, Piqua, Ohio to provide citizens with pertinent information about the US EPA Brownfields Cleanup Grant Program Proposal they will be submitting this month.
The City of Piqua intends to apply to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) for funding under the Brownfield Cleanup Grant Program. The US EPA Brownfields Cleanup Grants provide funds to conduct cleanup activities at a specific brownfield site that is owned by the grant applicant. The City is eligible to apply for $200,000 in grant funding to abate the asbestos that was identified at the Former Mo’s Lounge located at 111 S. Main St. Piqua, OH 45356. A Phase II Environmental Assessment was completed in November 2015 on the Former Mo’s Lounge. The Phase II Environmental Assessment identified approximately $260,000 worth of asbestos that needs to be abated.
The primary focus of this public meeting is to inform citizens about the City’s US EPA Brownfield Cleanup Grant Proposal and allow for public comments on the proposal. The application deadline for the US EPA Brownfield Cleanup Grant Program application is December 22, 2016.
At this meeting citizens will have the opportunity to review the City’s US EPA Brownfield Cleanup Grant Proposal, the draft Analysis of Brownfield Cleanup Alternatives (ABCA), and the Phase II Environmental Assessment that was completed on the Former Mo’s Lounge. If you are unable to attend the meeting these documents will also be made available for review at the Piqua Development Department located on the 2nd floor of the Municipal Government Complex, 201 W. Water St., Piqua OH 45356 from 8:00 AM-5:00PM.
Citizens are encouraged to attend this public meeting on Friday, December 2, 2016 to provide their input on the City’s US EPA Brownfields Cleanup Grant Program Proposal.
