Ideas sought on improving Navarre Avenue business corridor
Written by Kelly Kaczala

Councilman-elect Sandy Bihn is hoping to get some ideas on improving Navarre Avenue to maintain and attract more businesses to the area.

A meeting will be held on Dec. 1 at 3 p.m. in the Oregon Public Library to discuss the matter.

“The public is invited,” said Bihn, “but it’s targeted to the people who have businesses in the State Route 2 area.”

“The purpose of the meeting is to discuss ways to make the Route 2 area more attractive to existing and potential businesses visually and to start networking to try and improve the overall image and ability to retain and attract businesses,” she said.

A retail analysis of State Route 2 conducted in 2007 by Pitney Bowes/MapInfo, of Ann Arbor, notes that one of the impediments to attracting and keeping retail is a “hodge podge” appearance on Navarre Avenue.

 
Corps remedial plan - Soil sampling at Luckey site nearly complete

The Army Corps of Engineers expects to complete soil sampling at the former Brush Beryllium site near the Village of Luckey in December.

The sampling and topographic surveying are part of an on-going remedial program for the 40-acre parcel at 21200 Luckey Road,

Results from the work will provide the Corps with the necessary data for the next phase of the clean-up of the site, said Duane Lenhardt, project manager.

“This data is required to complete our remedial design, update the estimated cost associated with the clean-up, and proceed to environmental remediation,” he said.

Under rules set by the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program, the Corps in October began the testing to determine the extent of soil contamination.

The work includes:
• Clearing the planned study areas
• Performing a topographic survey using a 3-D laser scanning method to map out site features such as buildings, roads, and other surface objects.
• Conducting geophysical surveys over select areas of the site using electromagnetic methods.
• Conducting about 100 soil borings using a sonic drilling method.
