Subject: [CPEO-MEF] City receives draft of deed for AAAP property
City receives draft of deed for AAAP property
By Joe Schwizer

CHILDERSBURG  After years of effort by two city administrations and
numerous state, federal and U.S. Army officials, the process to bring
ownership of the old Alabama Army Ammunition Plant property to
Childersburg may be coming to an end.

On Tuesday, the city received a draft of the property's deed, which
council members, Mayor B.J. Meeks and the city's attorney will now
review, Meeks said.

The U.S. Army gave the draft so any changes city officials want made to
the document can be addressed by Feb. 27, when the Army is planning to
give the city the actual deed for Meek's signature, according to Pat
Robbins, chief of public affairs for the Mobile district of the Army
Corps of Engineers.

The Corps is one of many government agencies involved in the property's
transfer, on which work began in the late 1990s.

The property, which once comprised more than 13,000 acres, sits off
Alabama 235 north of the city's downtown. The AAAP manufactured
explosives for the country's efforts in World War II.

Over the years, the facility was dismantled and much of the property
sold off or returned to original owners. The Army now owns about 2,200
acres, which Childersburg is set to receive. The city is redeveloping
the property in to the Coosa Industrial Park.
