Public meetings set for east Newnan redevelopment By CAMERON JOHNSON Newnan Times-Herald (GA) March 9, 2007With six months to complete the master plan for the redevelopment of the east side of downtown Newnan — along the north-south CSX rail line — meetings between Town Works LLC, landowners and other residents are to begin in earnest.
Town Works LLC, the company formed by local architect Kip Oldham to oversee the creation of the master plan and its implementation, will also have a Web site up and running next week. Right now, says Michele Arwood, www.townworksllc.com is undergoing final revisions.
On Wednesday, Newnan Downtown Development Authority members will meet at noon with representatives of the Georgia Environmental Protection Division. The purpose of this meeting, said Arwood, is to hold a briefing on "brownfield" redevelopment.
There has been some concern — manifested primarily as an anonymous letter sent to landowners — with possible brownfield redevelopment and what the prospect of owning property found to be polluted means for its owners. For the past 150 years rail cars leaking various chemicals have been parked along the tracks within this redevelopment site, and the author of the anonymous letter voiced concern over who is responsible for the cleanup, and who will pay for it.
