Public Meeting: West Suburban Cook County Brownfield Project
Maywood Council Chambers (125 S. 5th Ave., Maywood, IL)
Monday, August 22, 2016 at 6:30 p.m.
You are invited to attend a community meeting, co-hosted by the Cook County Department of Environmental Control and the Maywood Beautification Commission, on Monday, August 22nd, 2016 at 6:30 p.m.
Delta Institute, an environmental nonprofit is working with the Cook County Department of Environmental Control, Weaver Consulting and seven municipalities including Bellwood, Forest Park, Franklin Park, Maywood, Melrose Park, Northlake and Schiller Park to begin the process of redeveloping vacant and often polluted commercial properties, known as brownfields.
With U.S. EPA funds, the project will investigate and assess contamination on vacant commercial properties so they can be redeveloped in the future.
At the community meeting, you will learn more about the project goals, brownfields, the brownfield redevelopment process, which sites have already been selected and how to suggest sites from your community.
After a short presentation, the meeting will open up to a conversation and questions from you and other community members. We would like to hear your thoughts on how properties could or should be developed.
If you would like to attend the meeting or have questions about the project please contact Nishaat Y. Killeen, at Delta Institute at firstname.lastname@example.org, (312) 997-5985.
A Message from the President
I believe that Cook County should be a world-class model of sustainability. We are working not only to boost sustainability practices throughout County government, but also to join forces with local governments, nonprofits and business, to accomplish more than we could separately in making each of Cook County’s communities sustainable. To further this work, I appointed Deborah Stone as the County’s first Chief Sustainability Officer, and as Director of the Department of Environmental Control. I also recognize that Cook County needs to share ideas and collaborate with a diverse group of community leaders and sustainability experts. In March 2012, I appointed the Cook County Sustainability Advisory Council to help lift our vision higher and give us access to best practices. You can meet the Council members and read more about their mission in the “Advisory Council” section of this website. Toni Preckwinkle,Cook County Board President
