The Bangor Borough Authority won’t market the prior incinerator property. Not right now, at least.
The board voted Thursday evening to support jurisdiction Chairman Donald Butz’s Oct. 2 letter into borough council President James Kresge that said the jurisdiction need to never market the incinerator and the surrounding home now identified collectively as the Bangor Company Park.
“Too lots of people had challenges with the sale,” Butz mentioned.
Negotiations were detained in the summer season that would have had the ability market the lengthy-dormant 79-acre lot for $1.075 million into Valley Industrial Properties.
Officials spoke programs with V.I.P. who wanted to meet with the deep valleys and level the steep slopes of the Ridge Road home to ensure it is suitable for growth, said jurisdiction Administrator Marino Saveri in June.
Even so, some residents and borough officials voiced concern that dirt and landfill potentially hauled in from out of country by V.I.P. could have a potentially adverse environmental impact.
Butz chose to create a letter to the borough requesting a meeting concerning the property soon after the authority’s September meeting when far over a dozen residents spoke out from the sale to V.I.P.
“I will be advocating at the following authority meeting that the jurisdiction cease all activities in respect to the sale of the possessions of the Bangor Company Park, and to meet with representatives of the borough council in respect to the possessions,” Butz’s letter study in part.
David Houser who serves on each the borough council and the jurisdiction was the only real vote on the board not in service of Butz’s letter. Houser has voiced sympathy in the previous with these who have been contrary to the sale to V.I.P. and he didn’t really feel the letter had enough teeth to be meaningful.
“The letter is open-ended,” Houser said. “It doesn’t specify any dates. ”
As long as the jurisdiction is in possession of the incinerator house, a sale to a landfill hauler is still achievable, mentioned Anna Maria Caldara, a Bangor resident that has been a vocal opponent of the property’s sale.
“We need to have assurances from the jurisdiction which their perspective has shifted,” Caldara said right after the meeting, “and from this point forward we need to need to understand that they take sustainability seriously. Any eventual plans or negotiations of sale is going to be carried out in coordination with the borough council, according to Saveri.
“If we do something later on, we will do it in combination with the borough,” Saveri mentioned.
The jurisdiction also voted without objection to refund $14,000 into Nimaris Building, which had spent dollars on several engineering licenses in the incinerator site in late years. Authority officials told Nimaris they would get their income back in case your sale didn’t go by means of, according to Saveri.
The home will stay dormant and shut for today. Hunters and acquaintances of the property frequently make their way beyond the fences and actually should be aware that police will be patrolling the house and trespassers will be prosecuted, Saveri said.
