EPA Cleanup Grant, Public Hearing - 11/29/2021 at 4:30PM

To the citizens of the City of Lorain and other interested stakeholders

The City of Lorain intends to submit an application for funding to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on December 1, 2021 seeking an EPA “Cleanup Grant” that will be used to help clean up contamination from past industrial uses at the former “Stove Works” property at 1200 Long Avenue in Lorain.  The cleanup effort will focus on the western portion of the Stove Works property which is owned by the City of Lorain, and planned for workforce housing and community revitalization purposes after site cleanup of historic contamination.  A copy of the draft EPA grant application from Lorain is available for public review and comment, including an “Analysis of Brownfields Cleanup Alternatives” which identifies options for dealing with site contamination, and the remedy that has been selected by the city as best in order to protect public health and the environment, and support revitalization of the property.  Interested persons may obtain a copy of this draft application at Lorain City Hall, 200 West Erie Avenue, Lorain, at the City’s Building, Housing & Planning Department on the 5th Floor, through the department’s Administrative Assistant, Barbara Holloway.  Ms. Holloway is reachable at Barbara_holloway@cityoflorain.org.  Interested persons may also comment on this draft application either by emailing those comments to Ms. Holloway at the city, or by providing comment at a public meeting that will be held to present and discuss this plan to seek and use EPA funding for cleanup of the Stove Works property. 

That public hearing will be held at 4:30pm on 11/29/2021 in person at City Council Chambers.  

Note that the City will accommodate and make this opportunity to review and comment on the EPA application to non-English speaking persons upon request.
