Discussion related to community issues
At the March meeting of the Middleport Community Input Group, April Strong, who administers the Home Value Assurance Program sponsored by FMC, gave a presentation describing the plan, its benefits and differences with the previous plan.

This program is meant to support the appraised value of a home when the current resident and owner wishes to sell. The plan also includes rewards for timely selling. There are major differences between the current program and the Property Price Protection Plan FMC sponsored in the past and which ends June 15, 2009.

To view the presentation and other handouts made available at the MCIG meeting, go to the section in the Document Repository for the program by clicking here.

Discussion related to community issues
About one year ago, FMC proposed a Correction Action Manage Unit (CAMU) to be located on the east side of their property in Middleport. This unit would contain arsenic contaminated soils removed during the various remediation projects for permanent storage. These projects include village properties as well as the tributary (creek) and culvert running through the village. Under environmental regulation, no hazardous materials would be stored at the site. The government agencies (DEC/DOH/EPA) will have to approve FMC's application before a CAMU could be established. The formal application was submitted in March of this year.

Soils which have been removed during previous remediation activities such as the school yard, Vernon St. and Park Ave. are now located in the proposed CAMU area. This current soil storage area is considered temporary. The application to the agencies is for approval of a design for a CAMU which would be permanent. The application as it was submitted is in the document repository of this web site. Click here to go there directly. Click the "Read Full Article" link below for more of this story.

In the document repository (select from the main menu), under the sub heading "Document Repository" then under "Meeting Presentations" you will find a presentation made at the May, 2007 CIG meeting. In that document are three maps of Middleport which show properties that would get remediated if the trigger number was 20, 30 or 40 PPM (the ones in green). Look at those maps and find out about your property.
