Cuz if people are going to live in an area and be paying rent, they should be paying for a home that's on ground that is clean and healthy. Duh.

It shouldn't be the case that people with less money are offered affordable housing that is contaminated.

As a parent it is inconceivable to me that housing should be proposed on a site which has been used for over 50 years for automotive repair and storage of junked cars, and is recognized to have housed both above- and below-ground fuel storage. As a legislator, I am disturbed that only 1/3 of the site has been investigated. INHS and PathStone have been aware of contamination on that third since Oct 2012, and yet there is no mention of it in any of the environmental assessment forms, nor recent investigation into the remaining 2/3 of the site. Given this flawed process, it would be negligent and irresponsible to allow this project to move forward without a coordinated and thorough environmental investigation of all 3 properties and complete remediation to "unrestricted use" standards.
