Protection of Trees and Animal Habitat Key as Phase II of the Sportsman's Remediation Project Nears

Sportsman's Park Remediation is a Complicated Issue. For Background please refer to several postings on this site. Currently, Phase1 is underway. The Coalition Addressed the park board in September with objections to Phase1.  Construction of a road in a previously wooded area to the west of Martin Ave. in an area free of contamination was the chief concern. As the far larger and almost certainly more costly Phase II Remedial Action Plan (RAP) is prepared, the West St. Coalition  has released the following position statement.

 

“The West St. Coalition believes that proper stewardship of Sportsman’s Park should spare no expense in the use of modern technology to ensure the natural and forested character of the land is maintained. Should disturbance occur, the land should be restored to its previous condition upon completion of the project.”
