City officials also discussed the status of Spaulding Commerce Park Tuesday night at the council’s meeting. LaMonaco said he is waiting on grant distribution approval in the amount of $82,000 for the interior work of the park, which includes sidewalk installation and tree planting.
The city will also need to receive a certificate of completion to recognize the environmental work done at the site before the park is done, hopefully by the end of September.
Council members took advantage of the discussion to raise the issue of a potentially dangerous drop-off from recently installed sidewalks on the Hinds Street side of a business park being built on the former Spaulding Fibre site.
“The street and the curbs are high, and then behind the sidewalk, there is a drop-off there,” LaMonaco said.
The fill brought in to replace the contaminated dirt at the site has all been used, but LaMonaco said he is hoping a business that will come into that area may lessen the incline.
“We just need to make sure it’s safe for people to get around there,” Council President Carelton Zeisz said.
