FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What happens if the project needs to go through the Chem-Dyne site?The Chem-Dyne site underwent clean-up in the 1980s. Since then, reviews completed every five years have confirmed that the clean-up effort has remained effective in protecting public health and the environment. Multiple environmental regulations remain in place, however, to regulate what can and cannot be done on the Chem-Dyne site. Excavations are restricted on the site, but these regulations do allow non-invasive structures such as parking lots, ballfields, and roads to be built on top of the clean soils covering the site. Any use of the site for the NHX project will be managed in complete accordance with these regulations.
What happens if the project needs to go through part of LJ Smith Park?The project team acknowledges the significant community value of the ballfields and splashpad and is committed to working with the community to explore ways to preserve and/or enhance these assets, including possibly shifting of some of the routes currently shown, if needed. Any impacted feature will be replaced with an option that is at least equal to, if not better than, what’s offered now. In fact, the NHX project may be able to help accelerate and partially fund improvements to LJ Smith Park.
