RAMSEY COUNTY - Ramsey County has negotiated terms of an agreement to buy and clean up 430 acres at the former TCAAP site in Arden Hills, at a cost within the original project budget of $30 million.

The county has received a formal purchase offer from the U.S. General Services Administration, and remediation and site preparation activities can begin consistent with the original project schedule. The Ramsey County Board will vote on that offer Nov. 15.


Congresswoman Betty McCollum said she strongly supports the purchase.

"Transforming TCAAP from Minnesota's largest Superfund site into productive land, expanding the property tax-base, plus adding hundreds of acres of open-space and trails for public use is a win- win-win for Ramsey County taxpayers," she said. "As partners in the sale of TCAAP, the U.S. Army and the General Services Administration deserve tremendous credit for working extremely hard to enable this transfer and starting the process of making this land productive once again."In addition to the stadium and nearby development, the project will add 123 acres of public land, including an enlarged wildlife trail corridor.
