HAGERSTOWN - The public is invited to attend a Jan. 23 meeting to discuss future uses for Central Chemical's contaminated 19-acre property in Hagerstown's West End.
The property off Mitchell Avenue was put on the Environmental Protection Agency's Superfund list of the country's most hazardous waste sites in 1997.
A Land Use Committee charged with recommending future uses for the property toured the land in mid-December.
The committee has about 25 members, including government officials, the president of Central Chemical, citizens and members of nonprofit organizations.
In late September, the city awarded a $67,686 contract to E2 of Charlottesville, Va., to help organize a public outreach, facilitate the committee and public meetings and provide technical review of ideas developed. Funding for the contract comes from an EPA grant.
