Agenda item for Monday, Dec 18 Conservation Committee re: test pits at this former Foundry site which was considered one of the Dirty Dozen worst polluters in New England. Rumors about apartment complex and possibly a restaurant. Can't imagine who would want to live or eat there, plus the area can't handle more traffic.

I know for a fact that I wouldn't be living there with my family. To me, a small industrial park would be the best use, but even then, I would hope for some extensive soil testing.
