Public Notice of Environmental Cleanup Analysis

Analysis of Brownfield Cleanup Alternatives for the PARK PLACE REDEVELOPMENT PROJECT

TO ALL INTERESTED PERSONS IN THE CITY OF LANSING:  TAKE NOTICE that the Lansing Brownfield Redevelopment Authority (LBRA) is accepting comments and review of the Analysis of Brownfield Cleanup Alternatives (ABCA) for the Park Place Redevelopment Project located at 301 West Lenawee Street and 524/526 Townsend Street in Lansing, Michigan beginning November 16, 2018 through December 7, 2018. An ABCA provides a comparative analysis of the cleanup alternatives being considered using the criteria of effectiveness, implementability and the cost of each alternative. The analysis also considers current land-use restrictions and future land use considerations. This ABCA recommends the best cleanup alternative and enables the redevelopment of commercial, retail, and residential components on the property which is a direct benefit to the public.

An administrative record has been established by the LBRA for the project. The administrative record, including the ABCA is administered through the LBRA and is available at the office of the Lansing Economic Area Partnership (LEAP) at 1000 South Washington Avenue, Suite 201, Lansing, Michigan 48910 or by contacting Karl Dorshimer, LBRA Director of Economic Development, at 1000 South Washington Avenue, Suite 201, Lansing, Michigan 48910, or call 517-702-3387 ext.210 or email at karl@purelansing.com.

Environmental cleanup activities will be conducted at this property by the owner/developer, Y Site, LLC, under a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) administered by the LBRA. Under the RLF, the LBRA has prepared an ABCA for the project. The ABCA provides for the developer to conduct certain environmental response activities and conduct site safety and control measures to allow for the construction of a four-story mixed-use building on the property. The property consists of 2 parcels with addresses 301 West Lenawee Street and 524/526 Townsend Street. Collectively, these parcels are bounded on the north by West Lenawee Street, to the east by Townsend Street, and to the west by South Walnut Street.

The LBRA encourages citizen participation and wishes to obtain questions and comments regarding the proposed ABCA. Questions and/or comments can be submitted via email at karl@purelansing.com or via regular mail if addressed to:
