Public Meeting Dec. 1 to Review City's Brownfield Cleanup Grant Applications

Posted: 11/23/2015
There will be a public meeting held Dec. 1 at 5:30 p.m to review the City’s brownfield cleanup grant applications to the Environmental Protection Agency for properties on Jackson Avenue and Broadway.

The meeting will be held at All Occasion Catering, 922 N. Central St.

Representatives from the City of Knoxville Office of Redevelopment and consultants from S&ME will host a public meeting to discuss Environmental Protection Agency brownfield cleanup grant applications for City-owned properties.

Specifically, the applications seek brownfield cleanup grants of up to $200,000 for:

- The former McClung Warehouses and associated properties on West Jackson Avenue between Gay Street and Broadway; and 
- The Former Sanitary Laundry Property at  625 N. Broadway.

The presentations will include a brief overview of the properties, the environmental issues associated with each property, the plan for cleanup activities and the grant application. 

Anyone needing a disability accommodation to attend the meeting should contact the City’s ADA Coordinator, Stephanie Cook, by Nov. 25 at scook@knoxvilletn.gov or 865-215-2034.
