JULY 22 NPA  AGENDA  ITEMS Miller Ctr, 6:45pm
  • Speak Out
  • Contaminated soil stored in Leddy Park.
  • Discussion of City issues with elected and appointed officials 
  • Public Hearing: 451 Ethan Allen Parkway proposed project
  • Reports from North Avenue Corridor Task Force and Bike/Walk Plan representatives
RESOLUTION: The Ward 4 and 7 NPAs request that the stockpiled soils be removed from Leddy Park. The NPAs recognize that additional testing must first occur before the soils can be removed. To that end, we urge in the strongest possible terms, that the BPRW, the DEC, and the EPA collaborate to ensure that the timeline for testing of the soil is significantly shortened, thus expediting the process for removal of the soil from Leddy Park as soon as possible.

*Are you informed about PCBs and how/why the dirt got dumped in Leddy Park
"People are pretty upset with the pile," explains Dave Hartnett, the independent city councilor representing Burlington's North District. This week, Hartnett and fellow councilor Kurt Wright (R-Ward 4) met with Bridges to press for a removal date. So far Bridges hasn't committed to one. He says more tests must be conducted on the dirt, and then he needs permission from the state Department of Environmental Conservation and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on how to safely dispose of the soils.
