Commission OKs brownfield site for commercial park The battery plant once operated on the site may also reopen. By Cindy Swirko Gainesville Sun (FL) April 29, 2009A brownfield designation that will enable new green energy businesses to locate in a commercial park at the site of the former battery plant on U.S. 441 near Alachua was given by the Alachua County Commission Tuesday night.
The designation was sought by the Phoenix Commercial Park, where Planar Energy Devices, an Orlando-based battery maker, wants to add an estimated 150 to 200 high-tech jobs.
Commissioners also voted to grant Planar tax credits of $192,500 pending the creation of jobs.
...Officials said that it appears contamination no longer exists on the Phoenix site, but a small amount may remain on an adjacent parcel.
