In November of 2006, the Middleport Community Input Group was formed joining together into one entity the members of different organizations concerned with the arsenic remediation and future development in the village. For approximately one year, the MCIG met on a monthly basis to listen to FMC and the agencies describe their plans and provide updates. For the most part, FMC controlled the meetings and the agendas.
In February, 2008, the MCIG reorganized with the residents taking control of the meetings and agendas. This reorganization was done so the residents would have better control of what was discussed and what decisions were made regarding the community. Our meetings are held in two parts with the first including representatives for FMC and the government agencies and the second with members and residents only so we can discuss among ourselves what positions we should take and what issues we should pursue. All views are listened to with no decisions made unless there is a consensus agreement.
The group has grown and now includes 30 residents as members plus a technical adviser from the New Jersey Technical Institute and a meeting facilitator from RIT.
We welcome new members. Joining shows other involved parties such as FMC, the government agencies (EPA, DEC and DOH) and our elected officials there is an interest in the community's residents to have a say in how the remediation project will proceed and how it will affect our community and our properties.
With regard to the current arsenic cleanup project, the group wants a meaningful cleanup but not one that disrupts the community and degrades the character of our properties and the village.
