How incorrect mist of you are. Prior to the purchuse of the site, full Phase I and PhaseII work showing a clean site plus a professional review declaring that Two Rivers Development Ltd. had conducted all reasonable investigation and was indeed an "innocent purchuser". Two Rivers has never been accused of containminating the site. The OEPA has requested further study in an effort to place the site in its "brownfield program" due to it's industruial past.

Anyone that has ever had dealings with him learned a lesson. Keep one hand on your wallet.

I think the whole idea of capitalism is to buy low and hope something 'fortuitous' happens- been my experience.

If the city doesn't have a full time grant writer then they need to hire one.

Maybe the current owner should have thought about the environmental issues before he bought the property. If we provide grants for development will we be buying the property first and making it an industrial park? Or just giving free grants to a private business person? Is this not the basis of wasting tax payer's money? I'd like something more specific as far as development plans go. No big grants for a huge concrete factory or frackfactory or other public nuisance. More info please.

Mr. Lehman did not build the factory nor did he close it up when it was no longer profitable, he just purchased the property after it sat empty for years. As for the study being paid for with grants, ie, taxpayers money, I can't agree with that.

Lets get this right his company made the mess and now he wants tax payers to clean his mess up? How about the EPA comes in and makes him clean up the mess or go to jail.

We can only assume that murphy77 was being sarcastic (or uninformed).

We need to support great businessmen like the owner of this property. You know he has the community’s interest at heart in anything he does. It will be great using Tax payer dollars to help this man out. I suggest that council forget the next readings and just vote yes!! God Bless him and God Bless the USA!

It's a little scary to think what may be found at the site. But it's time that something be done to redevelop the property.

The development office needs the third person even if grants are drying up. The city must become more creative and forward thinking in generating money to fund development, i.e. development! It's foolish to expect Mr. Coleman and Ms. Forshey to complete all this work. Simply can't be done. Nearly everything the city does is funded in part by grants, so if they're "drying up" the development office is going to need more not less staff.

I think the EPA should come in and inspect the site to make sure it's not a super fund site.

This is a great idea. The owner has been special to so many who have rented from him or had the opportunity to work with him.

This is a great idea. The owner has been so good for the community and he has been helpful to those who rent from him or deal with him. What a special guy for us in Marietta.
