The following communications concerning the closure of WC Reed Park in Brooklyn Centre were issued today -- Please note the community meeting planned for 6:30 pm this coming Monday 12/17 at St. Barbara's Church.
Given a recent environmental assessment that indicates certain contaminants were found in the soil that exceed standards for recreational use, the site has been closed for environmental remediation and renovation. We take this action in an abundance of caution.
Please see the attached letter and fact sheets regarding the issues found at the site. There will be a community meeting on Monday, December 17, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. at St. Barbara’s Church, 1505 Denison Avenue. We hope you or a representative from your organization are able to attend.
