Bravo Friends of Peak Creek! The Iron Bridge has "grown" wings!

"And now the bridge has "wings"..... these additions to each end of the bridge are a safety feature, so that if you are riding your bike across you won't end up missing and find yourself in the creek! The work was completed on Tuesday by O'Dell General Maintenance."

The wings were completed just in time for show off to our visitors from EPA and DEQ.

Felicia Fred from the Environmental Protection Agency (2nd from left), accompanied by Vince Maiden with the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (far left) were in Town yesterday to meet with the Economic Development Board (aka, "Brownfields Task Force") to review the progress Pulaski has made with our Brownfields Assessment Grant.

The Town has received two assessment grants, each totaling $200,000. The assessment grants are intended to spur real estate transition by lowering the anxiety a buyer might have about an old building and the possible nasty stuff inside.

Results from testing: The former Hill Plant at Jefferson Mills was purchased by the PC Industrial Development Authority -- once empty, but now full; the Dalton Building (vacant) was accepted as a donation to the Town and then purchased by Shah Development, LLC; the former Wood Products Building (vacant) was demolished by purchased and by Shah (now a parking lot); the former Dunnivant Building (empty) was purchased by Shah to create the Jackson Park Inn and Al's on First; the former Virginia Church Furniture complex on W. Main has been purchased and demolished by Shah for parking; and the former General Chemical Foundry in First Street NE -- tested and now a future remediation site with a new grant prepared.

To come: a potential recreation site on W Main Street is being tested before the Town may purchase the site; 94 and 85-89 W. Main owned by West Main Development LLC awaits testing; and the Coleman-Vaughn Building, part of the former Pulaski Furniture Complex, awaits a decision to test for redevelopment.
