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, (312) 997-5985.
